Windows 7: How to take a screen shop of the screen using snip tool

How to take a screen shop of the screen using snip tool

Hi guys,

I know how to get a picture by snip tool but it requires the mouse click. Consider this scenario please. There is a menu in some window and there is one button there which if I click on it some drop-down list appears. Now I want to capture that drop-down list but when I want to do that by snip Windows-built-in tool, that tool itself needs a mouse click which subsequently causes that drop-down list that I want to get its picture to disappear.
Could I say the subject clearly?
Is there any way please?

Yes, take a screenshot (PRNT SCRN button) of the entire window with your menu showing, then crop to the area you want after pasting into Paint, Photoshop, etc.

Or perhaps the slightly easier way that does not need image editing software is as follows:
Open the Snipping Tool and click the "Cancel Button" Don't
close the tool. A small icon will appear on your taskbar. Now
Click to open the context menu you want and that same window will open.
Now hold down CTRL on your keyboard and press the Print Screen key on
the keyboard. This will re open the Snipping Tool in new
mode and you will be able to draw round the window.Save
as normal!

Perhaps I got it wrong but I thought the OP wanted to know how to take a snippet of a context menu as when you have the chosen context menu open when you mouse click to open the Snipping Tool it closes the context menu. My post solves that problem!

There is a key named "PrtSc/SysRq" on my keyboard. But I don't know how it works.
