A Arcoxia compresse a cosa servono is Worth a Thousand Words I wanted to be able to step people through simple procedures of computer repair.

I wanted to take a screenshot during simple troubleshooting, installation and configurations and show people where to click and what to look for and where to look for it. I was having the darnedest time finding out how to do that on the internet! Well, I stumbled upon a very simple and easy solution and I thought it would be good to pass along the knowledge here. First, you’ve got to take a screenshot of what you want to show people. A Great Little Picture Editor Once you’ve got a screenshot of the part of the screen you’re interested in and you’re ready to draw your arrow, open up Microsoft Paint. I don’t like to work too hard!

Helpful Hint: Once you have your picture in MS Paint, at this point go ahead and save your picture as an edited version. For example, if your screenshot is named Pic01, rename it to Pic01_edit or Pic01_arrow etc etc. Identify the area of the picture to which you would like to direct your viewer’s attention and in the toolbar find the arrow shapes. Use your judgement to select the arrow appropriate for your setting.

Now, click on that arrow to select it. Now move your cursor to the region on your screenshot where you want to draw your arrow. Notice how your cursor appears as you move it over the picture that you are editing: It has changed appearance to a cross-hairs with a white circle in the middle. This indicates it is ready to draw an arrow. You will use this cursor to create a rectangle that your arrow will fit within. Make it as large or small as you desire.
