How to Use the Snipping Tool for Partial Screenshots on HP Computers
Taking partial screenshots on HP computers is a simple process with the help of the Snipping Tool. This tool allows users to capture a portion of their screen and save it as an image file. Here are the steps for using the Snipping Tool on HP computers:
1. Open the Start menu and type “Snipping Tool” into the search bar. Select “Snipping Tool” from the list of results to open it.
2. Once opened, click on “New” in order to start taking a screenshot. The screen will then dim, indicating that you can now select an area of your screen to capture as an image file.
3. Use your mouse or trackpad to select an area by clicking and dragging over it until you have highlighted what you want captured in your screenshot image file. When finished, release your mouse or trackpad button and a preview window will appear with your selection outlined in red within it; this is what will be saved as an image file when you click “Save” later on in this process.
4. If needed, use the tools at the top of this preview window (pencils, highlighters, etc.) to make any edits or annotations before saving your screenshot image file; otherwise simply click “Save” at this point if no changes are needed before saving it as an image file (JPEG or PNG).
5 Finally, choose where you would like to save this screenshot by selecting its destination folder from within File Explorer; once selected simply click “Save” again and that’s all there is too it! Your partial screenshot has now been saved as an image file which can be shared with others via email or other means if desired
