How to use the Snipping Tool to capture a screenshot and to snip

If you want to capture a screenshot, you can use the Snipping Tool (%SystemRoot%\system32\SnippingTool.exe). You can use this tool to capture any screenshot, or snip of any object on the screen, to annotate, save or share the image. All you have to do is, simply use your Mouse or Tablet Pen to capture any of the following types of snips.
•    Free-form Snip: You can use this to draw an irregular line, such as a circle or a triangle, around an object.
•    Rectangular Snip: You can use this to draw a precise line by dragging the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.
•    Window Snip: Select a window, such as a browser window or dialog box, that you want to capture.
•    Full-screen Snip: Capture the entire screen when you select this type of snip.

You can find a white overlay on the screen when the Snipping Tool is open. It will remain until you capture a snip. If you want to turn OFF the overlay, open the Snipping Tool and then select the Options. From the Snipping Tool Options dialog box, clear the Show screen overlay when Snipping Tool is active check box. Now, click OK. All it is done.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
