Screen Capture in Vista and Server 2008

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 come with a very handy utility for capturing the screen shots and saving them. It's called the Snipping Tool and can capture almost any region you want. You're not just limited to the whole screen and the current window like you are with the Print Screen button, you also have the options of rectangular select (the one I use most) and free-form snip. It's also got a couple of basic editing tools such as pens and highlighter. I use it all the time when I need screen shots. Just type snip into the start menu and it will appear in the list at the top. Enjoy.
