Editors' Review


This Internet Explorer add-on has only a small bit of use, but it effectively copies text to your e-mail client.

SnipIT lacks an interface, as it merely adds items to your IE context menu. Using SnipIT means selecting text from a Web site, choosing your e-mail client from the context menu, and watching the text appear in a new e-mail. The utility can't log you in to the client, but it will prompt you for your username and password. If you use Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, or Outlook, it flawlessly creates a new e-mail message and places your text at the top.

Of course, this isn't anything you couldn't do with the Windows Copy and Paste shortcuts. The difference? SnipIT adds the Web site URL to the bottom of your copied text. SnipIT doesn't copy images or formatting, but it did keep paragraphs intact. IE users who often copy text to e-mail will find SnipIT helpful, but shortcut fans will find their other method is just as fast.

"Works Great"

I needed to do a partial screen shot and save to my files. Worked like a charm. Much easier than doing a screen shot, saving it to Paint and then cropping it down!


There were no clear instructions that I found. But it was easy to figure out.

I got it to install on XP SP3 but that was all.


Kept getting an error message that Windows Live was having tech problems and to try again later.

Can't tell. Couldn't get to use it.


I downloaded it twice. Both times it would not install on Windows XP SP3. I gave up after that.
