I'm also a huge fan of Win7 of tablet PC's, the touch screen is amazing.

Snipping Tool was in Vista also.
Lol, really? I never noticed. I guess I am too old-school and used to ALT+PrtScn, CTRL+PrtScn, & ALT(tap CTRL once)+PrtScn.

My favourite Win 7 feature has got to be the fact that MS are actually listening to us users (Guinea Pigs) for a change, and are starting to give us what we've always wanted ... A stable operating system, visually stunning, and actively functional..... for a change ... after all its what we've paid for and supported for a long time

Some of my favorites might have originated in Vista, but I never used it, coming straight from XP....so here goes-

Aero Snap, Peek, and Shake.....very cool.
I just learned today what the snipping tool was.....a nice upgrade from Shift+Printscreen.
And I'm starting to really like the libraries.
And call me easily amused, but I like the desktop gadgets.

It lives in the Start Menu tho when you see how cool it is you might wanna drag it to taskbar.

Double click on it, then select the Snip you want to take, likely Rectangular.

Draw a box around what you want to save, name the file, then attach it to anything or just open and admire it from your desktop.

Anything and everything that you want saved can be snipped from within the OS.
