Ever wished you could save something on your computer screen as an image so that it could be inserted into a
presentation, document, etc.? MW Snap is the solution!!! MW Snap lets you save anything you see on your
computer monitor as an image (i.e. items from your textbook resources, web page items, etc.)
1. When you run MW Snap, you may see the following message, “Not all hotkeys could be registered – check
their settings in Tools/Hotkeys”.
- Click <OK>
2. When you start MWSnap for the first time, you’ll be prompted to specify which language you want to use.
Select <English> and then click <OK>.
3. The main MWSnap window will appear.
4. Minimize MW Snap. A camera icon will appear in the lower right corner of the computer screen.

Most of the time you’ll want to take a screenshot of “Any rect. area”. Select <Any rect. Area> .
8. Use the mouse to draw a rectangle around the item you want to take a screenshot of by clicking your left
mouse button and dragging. Click the mouse again after you’ve enclosed the item.
9. The screenshot you just took will appear in the MW Snap window. From here you can save the file, add a
frame to it, add a mouse pointer anywhere on the image, flip/rotate etc.
