Snipping Tool is an application included in Windows Vista and "Experience Pack for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005". It was originally released as a power toy for the Tablet PC launch on November 7, 2002. The program is a screen-capture tool that allows taking screenshots (called "snips") of an open window, rectangular areas, a free-form area or the entire screen. "Snips" can then be annotated using a mouse or a tablet, saved as an image file (PNG, GIF, or JPEG file) or an HTML page, or e-mailed.
