I’m sure I am very late on this. I JUST discovered the Vista snipping tool recently!  Here I was looking for my old CD with SnagIT on it and I decided to Google for “Free Vista screenshot tool” or something like that, and imagine my surprise when I found that. I am pretty sure that was not in XP, right?? Anyway I am happy as can be! If you have been in the dark ages like me, check it out under Start–>All Programs–>Accesories.  🙂
