As it is available in the Microsoft Store, Snip & Sketch (initially introduced as part of the Windows Ink Workspace under the name”Screen Sketch”) may upgrade faster and more often. It has already had four program updates with new features since it was introduced from the fall.
Did you know easy snipping is just one step away, as a result of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update?
Check it out in action:
When that the Windows key + Shift + S keyboard shortcut is too long to recall, there are three simple entry choices:
To fast snip and share a screenshot, media that the Windows key + Shift + S to bring a snipping toolbar — use it to snip a rectangle, something a bit more freeform, or full display and it’ll go right to your clipboard. You can take it from there, if that’s all you need.
However you may want more. Immediately after taking a snip, you’ll find an invitation to take your own snip into the Snip & Sketch app where you are able to annotate and share.
Unlike Screen Sketch, that the Snip & Sketch app will show up on the taskbar and in the task switcher (Alt+tab), which makes it a lot simpler to multi-task. You can also specify the window size, and it supports multiple windows.
- Just click on the pencil tail button. If you’ve got a digital pencil, go into Pen & Windows Ink Settings — you will find Screen Snipping is now an option for only click. This can launch you into our experience that is snipping.
- Press Print Screen. Go to the Settings app and search for”PrtScn“, that will take you to a page using a toggle switch that states “Use the Print Screen key to launch display snipping.” Turn on this toggle to begin snipping with just a single key press.
- Press the quick action button in Action Center, labelled”Screen snip.” It should be there as soon as you update, but if not, you could always enable it via Notifications & Actions Settings.
