How to print directly from Snipping Tool in Windows 7

Hello -
When our users had WIndows XP they were able to press the Print Screen button and print directly from the application that came up.  The Snipping Tool that comes with Windows 7 will do everything except for print from it.  Is there an easier way with the Snipping Tool to print a screen shot straight from the application instead of copying the screen shot to paint or Word then printing it?

The Windows 7 Snipping Tool can't print (just to confirm). Take a look at Snag It ( It claims to be able to send Printer and there is a free trial to determine if it fits your needs. ... Thinkpads_User

Windows Snipping Tool cannot print directly. Correct answer by me.

Snagit DOES print directly. Again - correct answer by me.

What else do you want????

Thank you. I was not looking for or needing the points, but the information herein is worthwhile. I purchased a license for Snagit, and it does some really good stuff. In addition, Techsmith makes the Win 7 snipping tool so far as I know. ... Thinkpads_User
