I use the snipping tool in Windows Vista all the time. If you’ve ever wondered how to capture a menu using this tool, here’s how you do it (straight from the help file for the snipping tool btw)

Can I capture a snip of a menu, such as a shortcut menu or the Start menu?

Yes. Here's how to do it:

  1. Open the snipping tool

  2. Press ESC, and then open the menu that you want to capture.

  3. Press CTRL+PRINT SCREEN.

  4. Select the type of snip you want, and then capture the menu.

As an example, here is a screenshotI wanted from the IE menu so I could show how to check to ensure the IE Safety Filter is on.
