    When using the snipping tool on a web page is there a way to scroll the page to include the part of the item that is not visible unless you scroll when viewing it normally ??
    Thanks

    Just tried what you asked about, answer NO. I believe you can decrease page size, snip it, then resize it using paint.net.

    Another way to acomplish what you are trying to do is to utilize Prt Sc. Press the Prt Sc button on your PC, then paste this into Paint. Instead of using Paint for cropping (same limitation as snippet tool), open the resulting file in MS Office Picture Manager and use this app to edit the pictures the way you wish. You can save the changes then use Paint to put in boxes or arrows or whatever to highlight portions you may wish tto emphasize. This can also be accomplished with any number of 3rd party appss, but I'm showing a method with some of the built in Windows and Office tools as the largest number of people have these apps already.

    Slide 1 shows the original Prt Sc capture.

    Slide 2 shows the image opened in Office Picture Manager. Notice the corner brackets used for cropping.

    Slide 3 shows the cropped image with highlighting boxes and arrows added.I opened the original Image in Paint for this slide.

    The snipping tool will not do this. Nor will it capture menus. See PicPick which is free for home use. A well regarded pay product is Snagit.

    Thanks guys.
    I am familiar with the options you suggested but going through all that effort kinda defeats the quick use of Snipping when all you want to do is email an article on the fly..

    One program I use a lot is Bullzip Printer which will capture the entire page and convert it into a PDF file.

    All you do is hit CTRL P and Bullzip shows up as a printer choice...

    Works great and the best part is it's free.

    Use Firefox with the one of the many screen capture addons (Screengrab, Screen Capture Elite, Fireshot to name a few). They can capture the entire page, including the part you cannot see.

    Off topic but in response to Joe's comment that you cannot capture menus with the snipping tool, see below for a way to do it.

    I have to admit, this should save a little time over the method I have been using. To add highlighting would still have to use a different tool such as Paint.

    Of course another possibility is to get SnagIt (http://www.techsmith.com/screen-capture.asp). I can't live without it - it captures screen shots in dozens of different ways and has a very good editor for fancying up the capture.

    Ok guys am I missing something here? Why not just email the link? If you're using FireFox you can get the EmailThis addon, just click the icon opens up Outlook with the link in the body, address it and send.
