Project Description:
XPSnipping tool is a small application that allows you to copy what is on your screen and crop out what you would like to save. Although designed for Windows XP, this application will run on any Windows that has .NET 4.

XPSnipping DOES:

  • Crop
  • Re-size
  • Multiple monitor support
  • Copy
  • Save

5 Steps to master XP Snipping Tool:
1.) Install the application by clicking the setup.exe and just keep clicking ok to anything it asks. There is no viruses or spyware to worry about.
2.) After installing, you should see a little black camera in the bottom right hand corner of your screen.
3.) Right mouse click the camera and then left click capture. From there the application will take a picture of whatever is on your screen.
4.) After you see a menu across the top of your screen, you may now hold the left mouse button down and drag the mouse to make a square region of what you would like to save.
5.) After making the square, right click your mouse and choose crop. This will trim out everything not in the square.

Remember - you must shut down XPSnipping tool before you shutdown your PC. Just right click on the little black camera on the bottom right in the tool bar and close it.
