Did you know that you can quickly add a screenshot or a portion of a screen to your Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint 2016 files?

To try out the Screenshot feature:

  1. Open the screen (such as a document or web page) that you wish to include.
  2. Go to Word, Excel or PowerPoint and place the cursor where you would like to insert the screenshot.
  3. Go to the Insert menu, and
    - on the Mac, click Screenshot.
    - on the PC, in the Illustrations (Word/Excel) or Images (PowerPoint) section of options, click Screenshot.
  4. In the Available Windows screen that appears, you can:
    - click one of the available screenshots to insert the entire screen
    or
    - click Screen Clipping, and then hold down the mouse to draw a rectangle around just the section of the screen that you wish to include.

The screenshot will appear in your document.
