Windows 7: Snipping tool can capture the active Start Menu

Snipping tool can capture the active Start Menu

As small as this sounds.....i've just found a way to get 'Snipping Tool' to capture the Start Menu.

There are many reasons that users would want to use the Snipping Tool, the main reason is to capture small 'Snippets' of the desktop in it's current user state.

If you right-click the 'Snipping Tool' shortcut on the Start Menu and select Open then the Start Menu actually stays active, allowing for capture of any part of the Start Menu.

Hope this is usefull for some people

Or you could open the snipping tool, click New so it unfreezes the screen, click on the start menu or any other context menu/menu to show it and press Ctrl+Prt Scrn.
