    No, not that snip !. I have the snipping icon on my toolbar , the one with a pair of scissors , Is there a way to "cut out the middleman" and print directly from the snip . I can either do a full screen snip or a section of it , but I then have to save to my docs folder , and then access that to print . Is it possible to print direct from the snip ? Or , of course , is there a different/ better prog that will allow that ? Grateful for any assistance in this .

    Highlight what you want to print then press ctrl and p at the same time.
    Set your default printer to your actual printer and not to a pdf etc printer file

    Thanks , i'll try that way . Never managed to print direct before . Is it possible with this method to select a portion of the screen to print ?
     
  4. IIRC you select what you what to snip, save it and then print it directly.

    Try left clicking your mouse and move over the area you would like to print, area should become highlited, then right click , a drop down box will appear and you can print from there

    Have a search on youtube, probably easier than me trying to explain.

    good luck

    Just had a quick try at that . Nope , didn't work for me . Not suggesting that either of you are wrong , it's probably me that's a bit thick -- but i'll keep trying

    It works for the whole picture , no problem . I save it , right click , and then "print" from the dropdown menu . . But what I needed was a way to select a portion - say a face , or perhaps a beast from a picture , and print that direct . What I do now is bring up the snipping tool ( the pair of scissors icon ) draw a line , a rectangle or a square say round the bit I need , click on save that , and then print from the saved bit . Just a bit clumsy perhaps if there was neater way .

    Pictures on sites are usually a single file, that's why you may struggle to snip the part you want without saving the picture, By saving the picture you are able to edit it to what you want and then print off
     
  9. I think it is made this way because obviously it is a handy tool for copying stuff for free.

    Id investigate and look for a third party app that lets you do the same thing but more readily.

    I'd screen shot......Then paste into PAINT & select the portion of the picture you want to print.

    doesn't look very likely I'll be successful . Major Geeks wasn't helpful , neither was you tube . I can print the bit I need , no problem , the method I use was just a bit clumsy , that's all . It worked OK though , so, perhaps , if it ain't broke dont -------!
