How to Capture Snippets on a Page


If you access a Web page that has images or text on it that you want to save to potentially use at a later point, you can take a screen shot. One of the problems with a traditional screen shot is that it makes an image out of your full screen. If you want to change this, you may choose to either take a screen shot of a certain window -- and not the full page -- or save images or graphics from the page as individual elements.

Things You'll Need

  • Photo-editing program

Capture the Active Window

  • Open your Web browser and navigate to the Web page that has snippets of content you want to capture.

  • Click on the open window that you want to capture. This might be a pop-up or it could be a full Web page.

  • Select "ALT" and "PRINTSCREEN" simultaneously. This captures the selected window.

  • Open a photo-editing program and press "Ctrl" and "V" to paste the captured window onto the page.

Capture an Image or Graphic

  • Right-click the image or graphic snippet on the page that you want to capture.

  • Select "Save Picture As" or "Save Image As," depending on your Web browser.

  • Type the file name you want to use to save the file and click "Save."
