To fast snip and discuss a screenshot, press that 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 straight to your clipboard. You can take it from there, if that is all you need.
Unlike Screen Sketch, the Snip & Reminders program is going to appear on the taskbar and in the task switcher (Alt+tab), making it much easier to multi-task. You can also specify the window size, and it supports multiple windows.
