Copy Excel Selection as a Picture

Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.

 
 

Disinfectant 3.7

Send Article to a Friend

Disinfectant 3.7 -- John Norstad has released version 3.7 of his venerable anti-virus utility Disinfectant, this time to combat a variation on the MBDF B virus that was detected correctly by the Disinfectant INIT, but not by the application itself. Disinfectant 3.7 is also savvier about locked disks and network volumes, and now includes an up-front warning that Disinfectant does not recognize macro viruses (see TidBITS-385). [GD]
