I have Windows 10 Pro. I'm a science teacher and a frequent user of the in-built snipping tool in Windows 10 Pro. I often create screen-shots of small parts of my screen to make "how-to" documents for my students. The "current-window-screen-shot" feature includes too much information. I'm only interested in the tiny portions of GeoGebra-calculations.
Currently I do as follows:
Windows button + S
snipping toolthen press Enter. The application opens (or use your own custom hotkey-combination to open this app)
Choose New then select portion of the screen
Open a Word document
Since everything is done from the keyboard this procedure is pretty fast. But in OS-X it's only a 3-step procedure:
Cmd+Ctrl+Shift+4 then select portion of the screen
Open Word document
Without buying a Mac (we only have PCs at work), what is the fastest possible way to take a screen shot of select a portion of the screen?
