Windows Vista comes built-in with a free screen capture or screenshot utility named Snipping Tool. Snipping Tool is available as a standard feature in Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, Ultimate edition. It should be installed by default by each supported Vista edition installation as standard feature, and can be found under Accessories folder. However, for some reason, some Vista does not load this useful screen shot feature, but you can always install or enable this feature manually.
Snipping Tool actually has available for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 since a while ago. Thus, Microsoft is kind of porting the Snipping Tool from Tablet PC to Vista for desktop and notebook usage. Hence, do not surprise when the guide asks you to enable Tablet-PC Optional Components later.
Here’s how you can reveal the Snipping Tool in Windows Vista, if it’s not yet enabled in your system:
- Click on Vista Start button, and go to Control Panel.
- Click on Programs link.
- Click on Turn Windows features on or off link. If User Account Control pops up for confirmation, click on Continue button.
- Scroll down the list of features in Windows Features dialog window, tick the check box for Tablet-PC Optional Components to enable and show the Snipping Tool in Vista.
- Click OK when done.
