Windows 7 b7000

W7 Pro x64 and W8.1 Pro DevPreview

Quick update for how I configured snipping shortcut on my W7 x64 workstation:
* when using Office Pro Plus w/OneNote open, click Windows+S to get the snipping screen.
* The first time after selecting the screen area it will ask where to put the snip -I checked "don't ask me again" and then "copy to clipboard"
