Snip and Sketch are other tricks for windows 10 which is helpful to capture the screen of the windows. Previously, we had to press “Print Screen” on the keyboard and paste it on image editing apps like Paint or Photoshop and Save that image. However, with windows 10 this snapshot feature becomes more advanced and flexible.
To take a snapshot, you need to hit “windows+shift+s“, this will open a small toolbar on the top of the screen. This toolbar provides the options of:
- Rectangular Snip: Allows you to take the snapshot of the screen in a rectangular shape
Freeform Snip: As per the name, you can snip the according to your wish in any irregular shape
Window Snip: Allows you to take the snap of one of the selected window
Full-screen Snip: Takes the screenshot of the full screen
After taking a snip of your choice, the image will be saved in the clipboard and can be opened in the snip and sketch app. In this app, you can add lines or highlight some parts or draw any sketch on these snapped images. That’s why it’s called snip and sketch.
