doing a screen capture on windows 7 then SAVING AS AN IMAGE file jpeg, bmp, etc

     My trial of word has expired and now docs only open in viewing mode. I am forced to send jpegs to my mac and input the images from word for mac. I know how to do a screen capture but I can't figure out how to save it as an image without doing a paste into a word doc. Is there a way so save the screen capture as an image so I can email it to my other computer?

Windows 7 has a built in screen capture utility called Snipping Tool, which once used, automatically brings up the area captured in a windows and allows you to save it as a jpg or bmp.

You can find it under program files - accessories.

Paste it into MSPaint  : )

Although, I like alienvoice's approach better!
If you install the free OpenOffice you could open your Word files and continue to edit them.
