    I just wanted to pass along a tip for a useful Windows tool I only learned about this week--the Windows Snipping tool. It's available in Windows 7 and later versions. If you are using Windows 10, you can find it under Windows Accessories under the Start button. The great thing about it is being able to grab quick screen shots of just the area of the screen that you really want and also being able to highlight and/or write on that clipping as well. You can save the clipping as either a jpg, png, gif, or html file.

    I'm sure this isn't something new for some people, but it was sure something new and cool for me this week and I would imagine it might come in handy for people who are doing a lot of animal loring in UO these days and want to save the information for whatever reason.

    Edited to add: Forgot to mention that there's also a delay feature that lets you set the number of seconds (0 to 5) to pause between the time you click the New button and when you want to take the screen shot. You'll have to search and find some articles (they're out there) to help you use/set that up, but it might be worth investigating to use in tricky situations.
