A feature in Microsoft Word 2013 is it lets you capture screenshots on your computer and paste it directly into your document. You can take screenshots with Word 2010 too, and here’s a look at the feature in the latest version of Word.

Open a blank document or any document that you want to add a screenshot to.

In the Illustrations section of the Ribbon, click on Screenshot and it will show you more options. You can take screenshots of an open window or a selected region. While you have a window open that you want to take a capture of, just open Word 2013 and it will show it as a thumbnail under Available Windows. Click it, and it’s automatically pasted into your document.

If you want to take a screenshot of a region, click on Screen Clipping and highlight the area you want to capture. It will capture the region and paste it directly in to Word which you can copy as well and paste it in other applications for editing.

This is a nice feature if you need a quick screen capture when creating a document. Plus you don’t need to launch a third party application for basic shots.
