If you’re into a huge company like (no it doesn’t stand for I Blame You butInternational Business Machines ) or Hewlett Packard – where using mailing is almost mandatory and you have to write tons of mails daily, you will certainly need to do plenty of screenshots.
Screenshotting in MS Windows is a very trivial thing, you press Prt + Scr (Print Screen Button), open and paste (CTRL+V) the file into it then Save the file as a lets say JPEG extension. However if you have to do that regularly, each time to create a screenshot you will have to loose a minute or two. Also it is quite annoying to open Paint and
Outlook version 2010 has a very useful feature Take screenshot from any existing opened Window on Windows host.

New E-mail -> Insert (tab) -> (click Screenshot)

You will be offered to choose along all opened Windows, for the Window from which you would like to have screenshot, choose one and enjoy
If you don’t see a window you want to insert, make sure the program isn’t minimized to the taskbar.
Alternatively, if you want just a portion of the screen, click on the button at the bottom of the Screenshot dropdown. This will bring up a crosshair cursor for you to drag around the area of the screen you want to select.
Your selection should then be inserted into your emailscreenshot ready to share with your mates.
