0 October 2018 Update introduces a new way to take screenshots. Snipping Tool is out; Snip & Sketch is in. (Actually, the Snipping Tool is at least Windows release, but Microsoft is phasing it out.)
Here's how the new Snip & Sketch tool works – and other shortcuts for taking screenshots with Windows 10.
Snip & Sketch
The new Snip & Sketch tool is easier to access and makes it easier to share screenshots, but it lacks an important feature. From the Snip & Sketch window, click the New button in the upper-left to initiate a screen capture.
The Snip & Sketch window disappears, and in its place you'll see a tiny picture at the top of your screen that you want to take – rectangular, free-form or full-screen , Surprisingly, there is no way to capture a screenshot of a window, which is my go-to with the snipping tool.
After taking a screenshot, it gets loaded to Snip & Sketch, where you can annotate it with the pencil, pen and other tools at the top of the window. Your screenshot is also copied to your clipboard, and it includes any annotations you make.
The Snipping Tool has been around since Windows Vista. Click the New button to begin the screenshot process. The snip tool is a snippet of snakes, but you can take snapshots along with a window snip.
The snipping tool does not automatically save your screenshots – you will need to manually save them in
