Creating screenshots is one of the most common tasks for many users: sometimes to share an image with someone, and sometimes to insert them into a document. Not everyone knows that in the latter case, creating a screenshot is possible directly from Microsoft Word and then automatically pasting it into the document.

Built-in screenshot tool in Word
If you go to the "Insert" tab in the main menu of Microsoft Word, there you will find a set of tools that allow you to insert various elements into an edited document.
Including, here you can perform and create a screenshot.
- Click on the “Illustrations” button.
- Select “Snapshot”, and then either select the window whose snapshot you want to take (a list of open windows other than Word will be shown), or click “Take Screenshot” (Screenshot).
- If you select a window, it will be removed entirely. If you select “Screen clipping”, you will need to click on some window or desktop, and then select with the mouse the fragment whose screenshot you want to take.
- The created screenshot will be automatically inserted into the document at the position where the cursor is.
Of course, all the actions that are available for other images in Word are available for the inserted screenshot: you can rotate it, resize it, set the desired text wrap.
In general, it’s all about using this opportunity, I think that there will not be any difficulties.
