In addition to the other suggestions made thus far, you might consider
using a tool like CorelDraw if your additions to the screenshot will be
complex. The advantage of CorelDraw is that it will import and export
almost any file format fairly well. So, you could:

1. take the screen shot
2. load the screen shot into Draw
3. add your numbers and arrows and any other text/illustration you like
4. save the file out any way you want: cdr, wmf, jpg, bmp etc.
5. place the final image into the Word document.

Although this may seem a little clunky, it is sometimes easier to work
with a "final image" as a single object when putting your document
together, rather than superimposing Word elements over the screen shot.
CorelDraw also gives you finer control and variety in the elements you
may wish to add to the screen shot. You may not need this, in which case
it may not be worth the bother. I simply offer it as a possibility.
