SNIPPING USING WEB CLIPPER

Scissors

PROBLEM

You find yourself surfing the web on your laptop and want to snip a portion of a web page to read or study later. You start to highlight the text and find that you are picking up all of the ads along the side. You just want a quicker way to do this.

SOLUTION

If you want to snip the entire page, there are a number of way to bookmark it. But sometimes you want to take the entire page with you. You can read it at a more leisurely pace, or in a spare moment. If you snip just a paragraph, it would nice to have a shortcut.

DISCUSSION

In order to use Web Clipper, you will need to install it on your browser. It is available as an add-in on most major browers including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and others. Once in place, use the following steps to snip.

STEPS

In order to use Web Clipper, you will need to install it on your browser. It is available as an add-in on most major browers including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and others. Once in place, use the following steps to snip.

To snip the entire page, place your cursor on the page and right-click the mouse. You will see a menu with “Add to Evernote” usually at the bottom. Select this. You will be given a choice to clip the page or the URL. Select “Clip the page.” Web Clipper will move the text (with the URL) to a notebook of your choice. To snip just a portion of a page, for example, just a paragraph, select the text first. Then right click and select “Clip selection.”

You may also find it is handy to use the Web Clipper icon in the toolbar.
