The Essentials: Taking A Better Screenshot

Brad Sams

Screenshots, it’s something you may not think about often but taking a screenshot is an easy way to share content with minimal effort. There are tools that are built into Windows to make sharing a screenshoot easier, primarily Snipping Tool, but it leaves a lot of room for improvement.

In the blogging world, we use screenshots nearly every day for published content; including this one.
