Use the normal way of taking screenshots and crop it later. For doing that you need to press the PrtScr (PrintScreen) button on your keyboard, head to a brand new blank word file, (or its equivalent) use paste (Ctrl+V, or right-click → Paste) and then crop it in word itself using picture editing tools or save it as picture and then crop it using paint (or its equivalent).

Any other way????

Hi Mohit,

In addition to the article that Jazz posted, here's one of my EE articles that has a section explaining how to use the Snipping Tool:

Snipping Tool is an other Option.
Any Key to make easy.
In Window 8.1

In Window 10:
Press “ Windows + Shift + S”. Your screen will appear grayed out and your mouse cursor will change. Click and drag on your screen to select the part of your screen you want to capture. A screenshot of the screen region you selected will be copied to your clipboard.

Btw, we've all talked about the Snipping Tool in this thread, but there are, of course, other "easy" (free) ways to take partial screenshots, such as the excellent, open source Greenshot:

It can easily create screenshots of a selected region (and, of course, a window or screen). You can annotate, highlight, and redact screenshots. Regards, Joe
