If you want to take screen shot there is Two ways for that
- First one is to take screen shot by pressing Print Screen Switch from your keyboard. In this method you have to press the key and then you can paste that screen shot in any type of photo editing tool like paint but in this you have to do some cropping and all that stuff. For example you want to show some installation window in somewhere then you have to crop out that window from whole screen shot. So that is worthless work. I mean if there is one inbuilt tool is available then why doing that monotonous work just do quick with snapping tool and be smart.
