In PowerPoint, a screenshot, (also known as a screen capture) is a digital image of what's currently displayed on the computer screen.
Screenshots are new to PowerPoint 2010. The presentation creator uses the Screenshot feature, and is prompted to select a specific program window -- one that is currently open and not minimized. PowerPoint snaps a picture of the complete computer screen showing this program window, and inserts this screenshot onto the active PowerPoint slide.
Screenshots are used frequently by technical writers, to illustrate a specific screen to the reader, so that he/she may have a clearer idea of what the writer is expressing in the written text. Throughout this Presentation Software website, you will see hundreds of examples of screenshots and screen clippings.
