How to add a Screenshot in Excel

Excel isn't just for crunching numbers. In fact, one of my favorite things to use it for is writing up work instructions that include screenshots that help the reader follow along.

Here's how to insert a screenshot in Excel:

  • Go to the Insert tab on Excel's ribbon
  • Click on the screenshot icon as I show in the GIF above
  • Click and drag to select the area to grab

That's it! Excel inserts the screenshot right inside the workbook, no other tools or apps needed.
