How do you use the snip tool?

How do I add a snip in here? It is supposed to be in the clip board ready to paste but PASTE is never lit up and I can't save and paste either. I can't select paste.

Are you able to save the snip?

or are you just having problems uploading to the site?

Hello 546 Inspiron,

This can help show you how to use the Snipping Tool. It's for Vista, but it's the same in Windows 7.

Thanks, I missed the manage attachments feature and tried to just copy and paste. I am new to snip and this forum but I will try that. The snip is a great feature and I don't remember seeing it in my old Vista OS. Hp has a feature like that that came with my new D1660 printer (Which died right after the 90 day warantee)
