Grab Images Right off the Computer Screen
Did you know that you can easily grab an image right off your screen and pop it into PowerPoint? It couldn't be simpler!
Set up your screen so the information you want to grab is displayed as large as possible. Press PrintScrn or Shift-PrintScrn to capture the full screen to the Clipboard, or press Alt-PrintScrn to capture just the active window to the Clipboard.
Switch to PowerPoint and choose Edit, Paste or press Ctrl-V to paste the image from the Clipboard into your presentation.
This is a great way to include things like static pictures of Web pages, program screens and dialog boxes, or information that won't normally copy and paste in your PowerPoint presentations.
