How to Turn On or Off Single Window Mode in Snip & Sketch app in Windows 10


The Snip & Sketch app included in Windows 10 allows you to quickly annotate screenshots, photos and other images with your pen, touch, or mouse and save, paste or share with other apps.

Do you tend to retake snips multiple times in order to get the perfect screenshot?

Starting with Snip & Sketch version 10.1907.2064.0 and higher, Microsoft is updating the New button to now open new snips in your current app window, so you don’t end up with a ton of open snips (that you then need to close). If you’d rather keep all snips open in separate windows, the option is now a toggle in settings so you can decide which mode you prefer.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off single window mode in the Snip & Sketch app to open new snips in separate windows or not for your account in Windows 10.
