Windows 10 October 2018 Update introduces a new way to take screenshots. The Snipping Tool exits; Snip & Sketch is already in (Actually, the Snipping Tool survived at least for this Windows release, but Microsoft ended it.)

Here’s how the new Snip & Sketch tool works – and another shortcut to take a screenshot with Windows 10.

Snip & Sketch

The new Snip & Sketch tool is more accessible and easier to share screenshots, but does not have important features that keep me on the Team List Tool. From the Snip & Sketch window, click the New button on the top left to start the screenshot.

The Snip & Sketch window disappears, and in its place you will see a small menu at the top of your screen that lets you choose the type of screenshot you want to take – rectangle, free form or full screen. Strangely, it does not offer any way to capture screenshots from the window, which I entered into the Snipping Tool. You can also click the down arrow next to the New button in the Snip & Sketch window to delay a snip for 3 or 10 seconds.

After taking a screenshot, it will load into Snip & Sketch, where you can add information with a pencil, pen, and other tools at the top of the window. Your screenshot is also copied to your clipboard, and it includes all the annotations you made

Snipping Tool

The Snipping tool has been around since Windows Vista. Click the New button to begin the screenshot process. The default snip type is rectangular snippet, but you can also take full screen snippet and full screen along with snip window.

Snipping Tool does not automatically save your screenshot – you have to manually save it in the tool before you exit – and automatically copy your catch to the clipboard.

Print screen

To capture your entire screen, tap the Print Screen button (sometimes labeled PrtScn). Your screenshot will not be saved as a file, but will be copied to the clipboard. You have to open an image editing tool (like Microsoft Paint), paste the screenshot in the editor and save the file from there.

You can also set the PrtScn button to open the Snip & Sketch tool by going to  Settings > Ease of Access > Keyboard  and switching to Use the PrtScn button to open the cropped screen under the Print Screen Shortcuts.

Windows key + Print screen

To capture your entire screen and automatically save a screenshot, tap the Windows button + Print Screen button . Your screen will be slightly dimmed to show that you have just taken a screenshot, and the screenshot will be saved to the Pictures> Screen folder.

Tombol Windows + shift-S 

You can also use the Windows key + shift-S keyboard shortcut    (or the new Screen snip button in the Action Center) to take screenshots of Snip & Sketch. Your screen will dim and you will see a small Snip & Sketch menu at the top of your screen that will allow you to choose the type of screenshot you want to record.

Alt + Print Screen

To take a quick screenshot of the active window, use the Alt + PrtScn keyboard shortcut . This will take a snapshot of your current window and copy the screenshot to the clipboard. You have to open the shot in the image editor to save it.


Logo Windows + Volume Down

If you shake the Microsoft Surface device, you can use physical buttons (good, sort of physical) to take screenshots of your entire screen – similar to how you would take screenshots on other phones or tablets. To do this, hold down the Windows Logo touch button at the bottom of your Surface screen and press the physical volume-down button on the side of the tablet. The screen will dim for a while and the screenshot will be automatically saved to the Pictures folder> Screen.
