Tips: How to use the Snipping Tool to capture screenshots

If you wish to capture a screenshot, snip or any of the objects on your screen, you can use the Snipping Tool. The pat of the Snipping Tool is %SystemRoot%\system32\SnippingTool.exe. Moreover, using the Snipping Tool, you can easily annotate, save and share the images. All it is required to do is using your mouse or tablet pen to capture any of the following types of snips.
•    Window Snip. Select a window, such as a browser window or dialog box, that you want to capture.
•    Free-form Snip. Draw an irregular line, such as a circle or a triangle, around an object.
•    Full-screen Snip. Capture the entire screen when you select this type of snip.
•    Rectangular Snip. Draw a precise line by dragging the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.

Once you capture the snip, it will be automatically copied to the mark-op window where you can annotate, save or share the snip.
If you keep the Snipping Tool open, you can view a white overlay on the screen until you capture a snip. If you wish to turn OFF the overlay, it is required to open the Snipping Tool and then click Options. Then, clear the Show Screen Overlay when the Snipping Tool is active check box in the Snipping Tool options dialog box. Now, it is required to click OK. That’s it. Simple.

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…
