>> Hey. What's up guys? I'm Brian Tong for CNET.com. And here's a Windows Vista quick tip for you all. Now we showed you how to do screenshots in MAC OSX, and now we're going to show you how to do it with Vista, using a built in Windows program called the Snipping Tool. Now there are a few ways to find it, but we'll show you the manual way. So first, you're gonna want to click the start button to open up the start menu. And then click on all programs, and then accessories. And you'll find the snipping tool there. So let's open it. Now your screen will fade out, and you'll have a few options for capturing screen shots. Let's play with the free form snip. Now I can hold the mouse button down and drag around any part of the screen that I want to. So when I release the mouse button on the area I selected, it will appear in its own window. Now I can add little notes using the pen tool, like, "Look. It's Tom." And I can highlight text that I want to point out to someone else. And when I'm done, I can email the snippet to anyone I want to, or I can save it to my desktop in a variety of formats. So there you have it, the snipping tool for screen captures in Windows Vista. I'm Brian Tong for CNET.com, getting you in the know with another quick tip of the day. ^M00:01:03 [ Music ]
