    Screen Clips Coming to Windows 10

    As part of its continued shell modernization efforts, Microsoft is working on a new way to take clips of the screen in Windows 10.

    I know what you’re thinking: There are many other ways to take screen shots – err clips – of the screen in Windows today. There’s the venerable PrtSc key (and its variants). Then the Snipping Tool and its Win + Shift + S shortcut. And the shell’s Win + PrtSc (and its variants). And don’t forget Game Bar and its Win + Alt + PrtScn shortcut… Thankfully, it doesn’t appear that list is getting any longer. Instead, it appears this new clipping experience will replace the old Win32 and GDI-based Snipping Tool and take over the Win + Shift + S shortcut.

    But that’s just a hunch...

    Feature enabled via mach2 works but won't save if pasted into Paint. Saves as an empty file!

    Perhaps, if it takes over the Win+Shift+S key combo; or you could pin a shortcut to the Taskbar, or something.

    Default save location would be nice too!

    For now, it's just a feature button in raw form.

    At least you can snip and paste directly from the clipboard! :)
