The snipping tool is a good way to capture an image of the exact portion of the screen you want.  But if you are running Vista Basic you are going to be out of luck.  

 

If you have a version of Vista other than Home Basic, the Snipping Tool is included.  
 
To open the Snipping Tool click on Start, All Programs, Accessories, Snipping Tool. 
 
If you don't see it there, it may not be activated.  to activate it go to Control Panel and open Program and Features. 
 
In the task pane on the left, click Turn Windows features on or off, click Continue when prompted by User Account Control. 
 
Scroll through the list of features, check the box next to Tablet PC Optional Components, and click OK. Turning on these features gives you not only the Snipping Tool, but also the Tablet PC Input Panel, Windows Journal, and other stylus-related features.
 
If you still would rather make a screenshot, here you go.
 

How to make a screenshot
 
1. Download and run A Thousand Words .
 
2. Follow the wizard to capture a screenshot
 
3. Use the built-in editor to resize, edit, or re-capture your screen shot. 
 
4. Your screen shot will be saved to your desktop when you finish the wizard.
 
You can post the screenshot in your next post as an attachment.  
 
Just below the area where you write text in a post there is the Post button, to the right of this is More Reply Options

When you click on More Relpy Options  you will see Attach Files and Browse, click on Browse, this will open Pictures on your computer, click on the image you want to post, then click on Attach This File, then Add Reply.

If you're only interested in taking the screenshot of the "active window" you can always just use the "Alt+PrntScr" keyboard shortcut (press the alt key and the PrntScr key at the same time) which acts like a screen copy, then open "Paintbrush", click on "Edit", then "Paste".  This method has been around since Win95 and has always served me well.

At the risk of sounding picky, it is "Paint". :grinner:

PicPick is my favorite. Once the screenshot has been taken, you can edit it easily and with many options, then upload it to Imgur.com or Imageshack in a snap. You can then copy/paste the images into forums in a few seconds.

I'd rather use Free Screenshot Capture. Because I can use its annotation tools to highlight the parts that matter.
