How to Take Screenshots in Windows 8

Best Screenshot Tool

With the release of Windows Vista Microsoft introduced a feature named Sniping Tool which made taking screenshots of the desktop screens easier. In earlier days people either used to install any third-party application in order to take screenshots or they used to press Print Screen key on their keyboards and then they used to paste the copied images on MS-Paint application. Then these MS-Paint files were saved as .JPG format.

These procedures were either very time taking or were expensive and therefore Sniping Tool now serves greatly to all those who regularly need to capture screenshots. The best part that Sniping Tool offers is that it gives users one click function using which they can take screenshots and can highlight or mark important points or options at the same time. Sniping Tool feature is also now included in Windows 8 and as a Windows 8 user if you want to take screenshot using Sniping Tool you are required to follow the steps given below:
