PowerPoint 2010: Screenshot tool function

Icon_PowerPoint10_33x32With the new ScreenShot function of Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, images can be integrated quickly and easily into presentations. Like so many functions, the screenshot tool is not only available in PowerPoint 2010, but also in Word 2010 and Excel 2010. This article introduces the new functionality in PowerPoint 2010.

The tool is under the tab insert to find. If you click on the symbol Screenshot the two essential functions of the tool can be seen.


Functional Overview

  1. Include available windows in the presentation.

  2. Screen clipping


To get an open window as a picture in PowerPoint, simply click on a window that is displayed in miniature. PowerPoint minimizes itself in the screen cutout and places a white fog on the screen, so you can immediately see what the screeshot will look like. With the mouse button pressed, you can drag your desired area. This area is then automatically inserted into PowerPoint when you release the mouse button.


The Office 2010 screenshot tool will make a good ScreenShot program not replace, but it offers the possibility fast and just take a screenshot in PowerPoint, Excel or Word. For users who document a lot and therefore need screenshots, this means higher productivity. With Windows 7, Microsoft has that Snipping Tool  attached free of charge and thus the logical conclusion was to implement a similar function in the next product.
