HOW TO quickly capture screenshots/frames from a parallely running video in MS Word

This tip applies to MS Word 2010

MS Word lets you add an image from any application running on your PC. If you are watching a instructional video and would like to jot down notes, this feature comes handy.

The Screenshot option is in the Illustrations section of the Insert tab. After selecting that option you can also choose the Screen Clipping feature to grab only a part of a frame of a video running in a different window.

If you use this feature a lot, juggling with the mouse to walk through the steps may get cumbersome. Instead, you can create a custom shortcut.

Right click the the Screenshot option & select the Add to Quick Access Toolbar option.

Now, the next time you want to add a frame from a video, just press Alt, then the number key corresponding to the number tooltip that shows up under the Screenshot icon in the Quick Access Toolbar (it's 7 in my copy of Word) and "C" key. So Alt + 7 + C keyboard shortcut inserts a slide from a running video into an open Word document after allowing me to crop it.

To replicate this shortcut, you'll have to replace the "7" in the shortcut to whatever number the Alt key shortcut shows under the Screenshot icon.
