    How to Create Screen Snip Shortcut in Windows 10


    Starting with 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 thats all you need, you can take it from there. Want more, though? Immediately after taking a snip youll now get a notification that will take you and your snip to the Screen Sketch app where you can annotate and share away.

    *note 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 create or download a Screen Snip shortcut in Windows 10.

    *note A screen snip is saved to the clipboard by default.

  3. Windows 10 Snipping Tool on Windows 7

    All it is is one extra step beyond what is native to windows 10. Yes, technically it would be easier to have the functionality of print built in to the Windows 7 version, but you just have to save it ,and right click on it ,and print.

    As far as getting the windows 10 version into windows7. I know there was a way to get the old winpaint, so maybe there's a way to get the snipping tool into 10, I don't know.

    im curious if i could compress, and upload the application to this post? 7zip doesnt seem to be allowed

    Windows 10 Snipping Tool on Windows 7

    One thing is you can make keyboard shortcuts for the various things you can do. And upload directly to imgur was very nice when I used it that way. And you can define an area and have a shortcut for screenshotting that area. I agree it's not as powerful in relation to the Windows 10 snipping tool but it's definitely way, way more powerful than the ones in previous versions of Windows.

    Windows 10 commands/shortcuts/env. var.

    Keyboard shortcuts to open programs:

    Create a shortcut on the desktop to whatever program you want. Right click -> Properties and fill in the field there. Sadly the shortcut needs to remain on the desktop, but you can hide it.

    Fun fact: If you had keyboard shortcuts for programs pinned to your Windows 7 start menu, those shortcuts still work when you update to Windows 10.

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    We understand how you feel about the situation. We're sorry for the trouble.

    Window + S is used for search in Windows 10. So, I suggest you to use the below shortcut methods to take the screenshot and check if it helps.


      • Keyboard Shortcut – Windows + PrtScn.

      • Keyboard Shortcut – PrtScn.

      • Keyboard Shortcut – Alt + PrtScn.

      • You can also use snipping tool take the screen shot in Windows 10.
    Hope this helps. Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
