    How to Take a Screenshot with Screen Snip in Windows 10


    Starting with Windows 10 build 17661, a new Screen Snip feature has been added to Windows 10 to be able to quickly snip and share a screenshot.

    You can snip a rectangle, something a bit more freeform, or full screen and it will go straight to your clipboard. If thatís all you need, you can take it from there. Want more, though? Immediately after taking a snip youíll now get a notification that will take you and your snip to the Screen Sketch app where you can annotate and share away.

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Skip Ahead build 18219, Screen Sketch app has been updated to version 10.1807.2286.0 and renamed to Snip & Sketch.

    This tutorial will show you how to quickly snip a Screen Snip (screenshot) and share or save with the Screen Sketch app in Windows 10.

    A screen snip is saved to the clipboard by default.


    EXAMPLE: Screen Snip





    Here's How:

    1. Perform one of the following actions below to launch screen snipping: (see screenshots below)

    Hi Shawn

    Is this a typo?
    4. You will not get a notification letting you know Snip saved to clipboard where you can paste the snip where you want. (see screenshot below)
    I wondered if it should say "You will now get a notification..."?

    Yep, it should be "now" instead. Thank you. Now corrected. :)
