- Open a program for image editing (e.g. Paint)
- Press CTRL+V
- Save the image

- Go to Start -> All Programs -> the “Accessories” folder
Select the Snipping Tool
Press “New” in the Snipping Tool and mark the desired area. With the arrow at “New” you can also select other options for marking.
After marking you can edit and save the screenshot
