  2. +1 in support of the snipping tool: I’m still on XP at home, but my current day job is on Win10, and snipping has made a few things a LOT easier

  8. @ Anonymous – There is not I’m afraid.You can get some great add-ons for your browser that will do the job.If you use Chrome or Firefox you can search the Chrome Extension Gallery or Firefox Add-On Gallery for ‘Screenshot’ to get the results.
