Screen Shots and Print Screen Programs

In many of the replys I notice "Screen Shots" and wondered how you do this in Windows 7? Also can they be saved in a folder for future reference? And is there a Print Screen utility in Windows 7 or a preferred Print Screen Program you recommend. Thanks for your consideration!

Snipping tool is the easiest tool in this task. You can do also with printscreen button on keyboard and paste it in paint. There is a paid application Camtasia studio.

I would have to agree. I should add, I do not do not use it that often.

The last free version of Faststone Capture works very well with Win 7.

I have to agree with the snipping tool recommendation. I really do love it and use it all the time. Just last night I needed to take several screen shots (just a portion of a web page) and I moved from my XP laptop to my boyfriend's Win 7 desktop just to use the snipping tool. You even have the option to email the screen shot right from the snipping tool box!

Cheers,
