Good advice at #10.

However, if you prefer to have a program that does it and can handle sections of a picture too, this old freebie works well and has good rendering:

Don't worry about it saying Windows 95, I'm using it fine on Windows 10 64 bit (although that does have an inbuilt "snipping tool").

EDIT: Now realise Win 7 also has a snipping tool - see below.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Oops - I never had Win 7 and thought the snipping tool came along with Win 10. Have corrected my #2.

Yes, Snipping tool comes in handy, especially if you only need a portion of the screen rather than the whole screen. I always pin it to the task bar so it is always handy without minimizing anything to get to it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
