    Snipping tool better in 9901


    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.

    Rather bizarrely it will try to take a snip of the start menu even if it isn't open but that's a mistake I guess.

    I'm finding quite a lot of nice little UI improvements in 9901. Will be interesting to see what the Jan build includes.

    You can try it in a VM - seems quite stable to me. Just have a look around for J_CCSA_X64FRE_EN-US_DV5.iso

    This is a useful improvement. But you still cannot snip context menus with the Windows snipping tool. That's why I use Jing which I can trigger from a function key. Example:

    Using the help instructions for snipping tool I was able to snip a context menu in windows 7 so I tried the same on 10 and it works the same for me.

    I did use Charlies method on earlier OSs, but turned to the alternative of having Paint open, taking a print Screen shot and pasting and cutting from there. Maybe a little more laborious, but I am used to the procedure now and it only takes a few seconds. I do have Snagit, but that also has some limitations.
    Certainly going to have a look at Jing, it looks interesting. Tks for the heads up, WHS
