Sometimes a screenshot captures more
information than you need to include on a worksheet. In
cases like this, Excel’s screenshot feature includes
a Screen Clipping tool at the bottom of the list
of available windows. Clicking this tool will open
the most recently visited window. Excel then dulls
the screen and the mouse pointer changes to a
cross. Drag the mouse over the portion of the
screen you want to include in the screenshot
(see Figure 12-26). When you release the mouse
button, Excel inserts that portion of the
screenshot into your worksheet.
Clipping a portion of a screenshot.
The Screenshot feature does not include
a screenshot of the window you are
actively working in. For example, if you
are working in Excel and also have Word
open, you will see a screenshot of your
Word document, but not Excel.
