Have the program or website on the internet tab that you wish to screenshot or crop shown on the screen. Find the Windows key, Shift key, and S key on the keyboard. The Windows key is identified by a little four-pane window logo on the key.
There should be a little box with multiple options appear at the top of the screen.

These choices include Full-screen Snip, Window Snip, Free-form Snip, and Rectangular Snip. Use the mouse to select the option that best suits your needs. You must crop the first two using the tool on the mouse to select the desired section.
