Tech OneLiner – Full page web page capture
A screen shot is great! (I use [Win]-[shift]-[s] to capture pictures and words all the time).
BUT, what if you want a whole web page?
I recently used this feature for a teacher who wanted to share a web-page from a site we couldn’t unblock for the students. So, instead, we took a full-page web capture of the website and shared that picture with them instead.
EDGE has you covered.
- Open edge and go to the page you want to capture.
- Click the “meatball menu”, triple dots at the top right. Then click “Web Capture”.
- Then choose “Capture full page”
- Poof the whole web page is now in a drawing screen. You can draw on it, with various colors. Then
- Click save to save it as a jpeg in your downloads folder. From there you can email, share to teams, etc.
- Click the meatball menu and choose “copy”. Now it’s on your clipboard to be pasted into a Word document, Powerpoint, etc.
Hope you find this useful.

Use Edge to Create a QR code (sent 20210816)
- go to the address you want to create a code for
- Click in the address bar
- Click the icon for the QR code generator
- Click download. (You can also type in the blank to create a QR for any text)
- Find the picture of the QR code in your downloads folder ready to be pasted into any document, site, or MsTEAMS.
- Outlook has a powerful search feature ... if you know how to use it.
- You can just type a name, but here are some common searches I use:
- find an email with a certain word in the subject
- EG: subject:"mike smith" will find email about mike smith not from or to him.
- find an email from a specific person.
- EG from:mike.smith will find email from mike.smith, not just emails that mention him or are sent to him
- find an email received on a certain day
- EG: received:=1/1/2016
- EG received:yesterday
- EG received:lastweek
- messages sent on certain day
- EG sent:today
- search for one instance but not another
- EG: "homecoming NOT parade" will search for emails that mention homecoming but do not have the word parade in them.
(note that "NOT" must be all caps)
