There are probably many ways.

One way without downloading any other programs... do a Print Screen to clipboard; open MS Paint; paste from the clipboard; save the file as .jpg.

A screen capture of JUST the image would be better then doing a Prt Scr which is a complete screen capture. With a complete screen capture you need to crop image out, so it would be better to use a good screen capture tool like FastStone Capture (version 5.3 only is free). This free program also allows a scrolling capture and other options, but the one you want for capturing images from Word (or any similar program) is the selection tool by pressing Ctrl + Prt Scr when the app is open or running in the SysTray.

Dump MS Paint and use a much, much better program, also free, called GetPaint.net. Here's more:

FREE software:

http://www.gimp.org/downloads/
http://www.inkscape.org/download/ (Very good for vectored graphics)

FREE online photo editors:

Add to that list of freebies: IrfanView. Download from CNet site

http://download.cnet...1...&tag=button

It's basic, but very quick to load, and therefore great for quick screen dumps - load, paste, crop and save in desired jpg format (or many others) in seconds. Not one for cut and paste within a pic, though - you need more power for that.

But good for what it does, and it's produced many a Google maps dump for me (and greyscaled it for cheap printing)
