Fastest Way to Screen Capture – Microsoft OneNote Screen Clipping Tool

If you have Microsoft Office installed then you most likely already have Microsoft OneNote. What most people don’t know is that OneNote includes a clipping tool which is sometimes much faster then using the snipping tool built into Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

To launch the clipping tools simply launch Microsoft OneNote. The first time you start OneNote, it activates the clipping tool in your taskbar, which will now run every time you start your computer.


To take a clipping, simply press the Windows key + S.


The first time you launch this, you will be prompted with an option to create a new OneNote document or save to clipboard. Check the box that says “always send to clipboard.”

This is great for taking quick screenshots for emails, web developers proofing, etc.
