A few well-placed screenshots, which are snapshots of your computer screen at a particular moment in time, can often replace many pages of written instructions. This is especially true when you are describing complex menus or highly visual environments. You can use Microsoft Word to order a group of successive screenshots and publish them to a single PDF that you can then email or post on a website for others to look at.


Step 1

Arrange the windows on your computer screen as you want them to appear in your first screenshot.

Step 5

Click "File" and choose "Save As."



Step 6

Choose "PDF" in the "Save As Type" drop-down menu.

Step 7

Enter a unique filename for your PDF.

Step 8

Click "Save." You now have a PDF of all your screenshots.
