To quickly snip and share a screenshot, media the Windows key + Shift + S to bring a snipping toolbar — use it to snip a rectangle, something a bit more freeform, or full screen and it’ll go right to your clipboard. You can take it from there, if that’s all you require.
Since it is available from the Microsoft Store, Snip & Sketch (originally introduced as a member of the Windows Ink Workspace under the title”Screen Sketch”) can upgrade quicker and more frequently. It has already had four program upgrades with new features since it was introduced from the fall.
Unlike Screen Sketch, the Snip & Reminders program is going to appear on the taskbar and in the task switcher (Alt+tab), which makes it much simpler to multi-task. It is also possible to set the window size, and it even supports multiple windows.
However you will want more. After taking a snip, you’re going to get an invitation to take your own snip to the Sketch & Snip app where you can annotate and share.
When that the Windows key + Shift + S keyboard shortcut is too long to remember, there are three easy entry choices:
- Click on the pencil tail button. If you’ve got a digital pencil, go into Pen & Windows Ink Settings — you’ll find Screen Snipping is currently an option for only click. This will launch you into our snipping experience.
- Press Print Screen. Visit the Settings program and search for”PrtScn“, which will take you to a page with a toggle switch which states “Use the Print Screen key to launch display snipping.” Turn with this toggle to start snipping with just a single key press. It should be there as soon as you upgrade, however if not, you can always enable it via Notifications & Actions Settings.
Were you aware easy snipping is only one step away, as a result of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update?
