#Office365Challenge – Snipping Tool. I’ve been using this for many years and it’s also the first thing I teach my students. A frustration I’ve always had was that you cannot make a screenshot of an open menu as it collapses when you click to open the Snipping Tool. Well…. I was wrong.
Note: The Delay function is only available in the Windows 10 upgrade (thanks Marlon Green).

Tools: Windows, Office 365
Description: Windows Snipping Tool – Delay Function

Snipping Tool is a screenshot utility included in Windows Vista and later. To make a screenshot, simply click on the snipping tool and you can take screenshot of the area you require.

Now as explained, to take a screenshot of a menu that you’ve opened is tricky, as it collapses as soon as you click on Snipping Tool. To get around this, open snipping tool and set the Delay. Now if you click on “New” you’ll have a couple of seconds to open the desired menu before the “screen freezes” for the snip.



Happy Snipping

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
