    Are you referring to the Snipping Tool? If so, is there a better way to capture a portion of a screen? I know of no other way other than WinKey/PrintScreen for a screenshot and then modify in a program, but that’s more work.

    EXCEL is also a bit of overkill when just using a calculator -- also one might NOT have office installed on that particular machine
    Agree, but while using Excel, AutoSum and Formulas are great. The open Excel sheet was used in my screenshot just as an example of an open window.

    However someone mentioned CALC.EXE still exists so I'll pin that to the taskbar.
    Both versions of Calculator are some of the first tiles I place on my Start Screen in the first most-used column. I’ll use either one depending on what I’m performing.

    I see very little difference so far as size for screen real estate.

    However, I must admit that the Win32 version is better for it has far more options/modes that they added through the years. Remember it way back when? I’m trying to remember when they released it. Let’s see > WinKey > 2 arrows right > 1 down > opens my Wekipedia Store app > 2 tab keys to search box > type “Calc.exe” > Enter > walla! > info.

    They have come a long way with it.

    Hi there
    I'm "Semi-Retired" now - but still do the odd contract for usually largish organisations in Holland, UK, France, Belgium and Germany from time to time -- all adds up to some "extra pennies" these days.

    Probably going to retire to somewhere like S.E France (not too far from Biarritz - HENDAYE right ON the Spanish border -- already seen a place I want to get). Hendaye is sufficiently far from the Beach to avoid the hordes of Tourists although beach easily walkable / bikeable if you are reasonably fit and has great links to Biarritz and San Sebastian (Spain). Biarritz is a decent airport too (if that's not a contradiction in terms --Airports and Decent !!) so travelling further afield is still easy. If one likes ships there's also a decent Ferry connection from BILBAO (about 1.5 hrs away on Motorway) and Portsmouth in UK too.
