I will be teaching a few co-workers how to perform some of the features in Word 2007. I am in the midst of creating my lesson, and I don't know how to insert sample windows in my document. For example, my powerpoint may tell them to select the label tab. How to I insert a picture showing them what it should look like?

Hi ceecee,
From Word, bring up whatever you're trying to show them (for example, the label tab). On the keyboard, hit Alt and Prt Scr (or Print Screen) at the same time. This will make a copy of just that window. Then in Powerpoint, you can select Ctrl and V to paste it into PowerPoint. Hope that helps.

Thanks! So if I were creating a printed, I would have to have 2 windows open? One for the document and the other to cut and paste from and then adjust the size?

I'd have Word open and PowerPoint both open so you can move back and forth between them. You can copy from Word, paste it into Ppt and adjust the size there. Good luck!

Better yet save these screen shots as images that way you will be able to reuse them as needed.

If you have Windows Vista or 7, which comes with Snipping tool, try the following:
If you want to capture a snip of a menu, such as the Start menu, follow these steps:

Open the Snipping Tool.

After you open Snipping Tool,
press ESC, and then open the
menu that you want to capture.

Press CTRL+PRINT SCREEN.

Click the arrow next to the
New button, select a snip type
from the menu, and then use
your mouse or tablet pen to
capture the menu.
Note: I have found that you may not need to "Click on the NEW button" as the selection arrows may get activated.

If you have Windows 7 or Vista, then YES, you have it.
Start, and then type snip in the search pane and you will see it listed.
