Snipping Tool

The Snipping Tool is my favorite new toy in Vista. It doesn’t do much – it allows you to capture a section of your screen. There is a lot of software that does the same thing. But they aren’t this drop-dead-easy.

You just mark what you want and save it. Easy. Not a lot of keystrokes to memorize, no opening MSPaint and pasting the clipboard contents.

It’s a simple new addition to the core OS, but it makes my life a little easier.
