#Microsoft365 Day 55: Insert screenshots in Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook

#Microsoft365 – Recently I wrote about making screen recordings with PowerPoint, but did you know you can take screenshots in the other Office programs?

For previous posts in my #Microsoft365Challenge go to the index page.

Creating a screenshot:

In the past, users would have pressed the Print Screen button and then paste it in a document. Those who knew how to crop it – would then resize as to their liking (as it makes a screenshot of everything – even multiple screens).

I’ve always taught my students to use Snipping Tool (Windows), but have to admit that Inserting a Screenshot is even easier. If you have multiple screens (windows), it will allow you to pick the screen you would like to use:




When inserting a screenshot you can select the full screen or do a screen clipping which allows you to select the area you would like to insert:



Purpose of this blog challenge:

I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.

Feel free to #AskBraam if you have questions or would like me to write about a specific topic. I’ve created a Flow to monitor Twitter for the #AskBraam hashtag and will try my best to incorporate any questions into the blogs, or answer them directly on Twitter. This is a “Learning through Sharing” approach to teach my pet sheep about Microsoft – read more on this here.
