Microsoft has been slammed by a plethora of users from the MacWorld Keyboard Cowboy to the Microsoft Gold Partner. I want to shine some light on some of the great functionality brought forth by the handy people in Redmond.

Who has the same love/hate relationship with Print Screen and MS Paint? .. “I do… I do” (I hear you all out there). Let me open the pearly gates and welcome you to Screen Shot Heaven!

The following will allow you to:

– Take shots of any section of the screen

– Take shots of right click menus

– Use OneNote to copy text out of screen shots


1.) “Windows Key” + “S”
