We have many clients who use screen captures in email to send info to other people, and the process is now very slick in Outlook 2010. You can capture entire screens or limit your capture to a defined area of the screen. Here’s how to get started:
Create a new email message in Outlook 2010 and then click in the body of the message. From there, click on “Insert” in the ribbon bar.
Under the Insert tab, click “Screenshot”. From the Screenshot dropdown, click on one of the available windows to insert into your message. Make sure any windows you might want to capture are not minimized or they will not be available for capture.
The selected window will be inserted into the message. (If you just want a portion of the screen, click on the Screen Clipping button at the bottom of the Screenshot dropdown. This will bring up a crosshair for you to drag around the area of the screen you want to select.
This is a very handy tool, and it is easy to overlook in your day-to-day messaging. Hopefully this tip will make your lifa a little easier.
