 Some versions have this and some don’t.  If it doesn’t, then you probably shouldn’t bother reading any further.
 Be sure to check and see if you have it.  It might serve as an interesting tip on getting a Shortcut key to the Snipping Tool.  It’s a Windows Vista exclusive but as far as which version; I don’t know which ones exactly off the top of my head.
 If I knew, I’d say which one.  Anyway, this should be interesting and this is how to do it if you have it of course.
 A brief note about the Snipping Tool is that it can take region or full screenshots.  Basically you can take as much or as little as a screenshot as you possibly would want and could serve better with that than the Print Screen button on your keyboard.

 As things in life, there’s always a catch.  There is no hotkey but if you read below, you’ll learn how to take care of that little minor annoyance.
 Before going on any further, see if you have it.  Go into All Programs and then click on Accessories.
 If you don’t have it, then it’s either not installed or it didn’t come with your Vista.  Chances are 50/50 on that front and that’s about it.  Look below at the screenshot and it should be a great indicator whether or not you have it.
 Anyway, just right-click and check on its properties.
 You can give it a shortcut key by default.  Pick a value that you shall remember and that should do the trick. There is really nothing else to it.  If you have this program, try it out and if you don’t, then I don’t know what to tell you.  Maybe try to pick up a version.
