OneNote 2013: To Create a Screen Clipping

Favorite Article   

You can use Microsoft Office OneNote 2013 to take a picture of any part of your computer screen and insert the picture into your notes. These pictures are called screen clippings. Their size can range from a few pixels to the entire height and width of the screen. Anything in the area you select will appear in the image and is automatically pasted into your notes and Clipboard. Screen clippings are useful for capturing snapshots of information in a Web page that might change or expire, such as a breaking news story or a time-sensitive list of available flights and rates on a travel Website. Screen clippings are also helpful for copying from Web pages and other sources whose formatting may not successfully transfer into your notes by other methods such as copying and pasting. Screen clippings, though, are not linked to their sources.

To Create a Screen Clipping in OneNote and Insert it Anywhere in Your Notes:

1. Display the information on your screen that you want to capture.

2. In OneNote, place the mouse pointer on the notes page where you wish to add the screen clipping.

3. Select the Insert tab. Then, select Screen Clipping. OneNote will be minimized and the last active window is shown, slightly dimmed.

4. Drag the mouse pointer in any direction to create a rectangular selection over the screen area that you want to capture.

5. When you release the mouse button, OneNote will capture your selection as a picture and will insert it into your notes page. OneNote will also copy the selection to the Clipboard so you can use the screen clipping on another page in your notebook or in another program entirely.

2. Drag the mouse pointer in any direction to create a rectangular selection over the screen area that you want to capture.
