Windows 10: Start Menu and The Snipping Tool
Start Menu and The Snipping Tool
How do I take a screenshot of the Start Menu with the Snipping Tool if as soon as I click Snipping Tool the Start Menu closes?
Like any menu or window that closes when focus changes, you can use PrtSc (should be a key labelled that on your keyboard). This takes a screenshot of your whole screen and then you can use e.g. paint to crop it if you wish.
Two ways to get a screenshot of the Start menu.
Ctrl-PrtScr works., paste it into your favourite photo editor.
Snipping Tool works if, before you click New you first Click 'Delay', set (say) 5 seconds then click 'New'. You now have about 5 seconds to open the Start menu before the 'snip' takes place.
Many thanks for both of those tips. I can now start my next thread!

Is it possible to add the Snipping tool to the Desktop right click menu?
A minor change in 9901 - snipping tool now guesses what you want. Just click on new and you no longer (as in 8) have to specify window or full screen. It will select a window snip from partially obscured window which is pretty cool.
