Did you know easy snipping is only a single step away, thanks to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update?

As it is offered in the Microsoft Store, Snip & Sketch (originally introduced as a member of the Windows Ink Workspace under the name”Screen Sketch”) may update faster and more often.  It has already had four program upgrades with new features because it was released in the fall.  
To quickly snip and share a screenshot, press that the Windows key + Shift + S into  bring up a snipping toolbar — use it to snip a rectangle, something a bit more freeform, or full screen and it will go straight to your clipboard. You can take it from there if that is all you require.

When that the Windows key + Shift + S keyboard shortcut is too long to remember, there are just three simple entry options: 

  1. Click on the pen tail button.  When you’ve got a digital pencil, enter Pen & Windows Ink Settings — you will find Screen Snipping is now a choice for single click. This will launch you straight into our encounter.  
  1. Press Print Screen. Go to the Settings app and search for”PrtScn“, that will take you to a page with a toggle switch that says“Use the Print Screen key to start display snipping.” Switch on this toggle to start snipping with just a single key press.  
  1. Press the fast action button in Action Center, labelled”Screen snip.” It should be there as soon as you update, however should not, you can always enable it through Notifications & Actions Settings.  

Check it out in action: 
Unlike Screen Sketch, that the Snip & Sketch app is going to show up on the taskbar and in the task switcher (Alt+tab), making  it much easier to multi-task. You can also set the window size, and it even supports multiple windows.
