Web Clipping Fact Card

Click image to open the Factsheet
So you have something on a web page that you want to make part of your worksheet/ slide deck/ whiteboard file/ notebook? You can usually copy and paste but sometimes you want to be able to capture it exactly as it looks on the screen at that moment.

Web Clipping is one of those things that does actually take practice, and you may need to unlearn some tricks.

If you aren't used to working with one you probably have a workaround (on a Mac my old method involves holding down three keys on the keyboard, choosing what I want, then inserting the picture manually - it takes a while and leaves my desktop littered with files I don't want). When you see someone using one it is so obviously something worth learning.

There are some guides on the factsheet for using web clipping with various popular apps - take the time to become so confident you can use it without thinking during lessons.

If you use use Windows 10, the web-clipping tool in Microsoft Edge is simple and absolutely brilliant - well worth checking.
