Windows 7: Wired things with the snipping tool

Wired things with the snipping tool

I snipped a google map then drew a line around the area I wanted and emailed it and this is what I got. When I click on the map I got the image with all the crap on it and then I need to click on the top where it says Capture1 "which is not on the image because I didn't get all of it" to open up the map again in it's large form. I just don't know why I got all this data and what to do so it doesn't happen again.

I am afraid I do not understand. I do not see a snipped map at all. Try to explain again.

If you snip something, you get a .jpeg or .png picture. Where is that in your story.

Right, did you save the snip as some image? The other crap is what you have downloaded previously.

when I save the image to skydrive 29K this is what it does. If I send the entire image I don't have that problems but it's 480K. Any idea why I get all the extra data when it goes to skydrive because I'm using Live mail.

I don't know what might happen via Live Mail. Why don't you just create a folder on Skydrive, open that folder and drag the picture into it.

Does anyone know if there is a shortcut to open the snipping tool? Like the shortcut - Windows+S on OneNote 2007 for a screen capture if you've ever used it.
