If the Windows key + Shift + S keyboard shortcut is too long to remember, there are three easy entry options:
Unlike Screen Sketch, the Snip & Sketch app is going to appear on the taskbar and at the task switcher (Alt+tab), making it much simpler to multi-task. You can also set the window size, and it supports multiple windows.
As it’s available from the Microsoft Store, Snip & Sketch (originally introduced as a member of the Windows Ink Workspace under the title”Screen Sketch”) can update quicker and more often. It has currently had four app upgrades with new features since it was introduced from the fall.
- Just click on the pen tail button. If you have a digital pencil, enter Pen & Windows Ink Settings — you will find Screen Snipping is now an option for only click. This can launch you straight into our experience.
- Press Print Screen. Visit the Settings program and search for”PrtScn“, that will take you to a webpage with a toggle switch which says“Use the Print Screen key to start display snipping.” Turn on this toggle to start snipping with a single key press.
- Press the quick action button in Action Center, labelled”Screen snip.” It ought to be there as soon as you upgrade, but if not, you can always enable it through Notifications & Actions Settings.
Did you know easy snipping is just one step away, thanks to that the Windows 10 October 2018 Update?
To fast snip and discuss a screenshot, press the Windows key + Shift + S to bring up a snipping toolbar — use it to snip a rectangle, something a bit more freeform, or full screen and it’ll go straight to your clipboard. You can take it from there, if that is all you require.
But you will want more. Immediately after taking a snip, you’ll find an invitation to take your snip to the Snip & Sketch app where you can annotate and discuss.
