if you have a mobile phone, turn off automatic Flash and take a picture of the screen, then Send /Share that  by email, bluetooth or wi-fi or USB cable to your laptop.

Unfortunately I don't have a mobile phone.

The CEX Gadgets Exchange shop in Irvine Mall has a UK national Online Ordering Service. For 25 you can get a S/Hand or Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Ace mobile phone on ~ANY network.   Even if you don't use it as a phone it has an excellent Camera.  Easy to use, basically Aim, Hold Steady and CLICK and you will have a High Resolution Quality Image / Photo.  From the Camera-Phone you can Send /Share the Photos with other mobile phones and Computers of any kind by several methods, all Easy to do after a little tuition. You can transfer the photos using built in methods such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth which are low powered short distance Radio transmissions but you can also send them by attachments to emails, or by connecting a cable from the phone to the computer.  If you just use it as a camera you don't need a SIM card or a Network so it costs you nothing.  I've got several that I use just for the Photos and Videos as they are superior to those taken by my 30 year old Canon Camera.

In the Windows Start Menu click Windows Accessories

Scroll down to find the Snipping Tool.  Right click, and select More, then Pin to Taskbar.
Now you should have the Snipping Tool on the taskbar whenever you need to use it.

Open your article in FindMyPast.  If you want rid of the highlights, click on Search Terms above the article.

Zoom to the required size.

Now click on Snipping Tool and select New

The screen will go opaque. Place the cross at the top corner of your article and
draw a box round the part you want. Then in the Snipping Tool File menu, click Save as

Choose where to save the file.

Replace the Filename "Capture.jpg" with the name of your choice. (perhaps the name of the newspaper the article is from).  File type should be .jpg

Click Save.

The file should now be available for you to open in Paint or with any other imaging program.

Press the Windows logo and then type Snipping . It should come up at the top of the list. Just click on it and do what Isabel has said:

Hello,

I wonder if it has been moved.   I just tried clicking on the snipping tool, on my new windows 10 laptop, and this message popped up.

In a future update snipping tool will be moving to a new home.  Try improved Windows Logo key and Shift + S.

Cheers
KHP

Added:  I now see it under the "S" in the menu as Snip and Sketch.
