  1. How on earth do I save my win+shift+s snips on desktop?


    With win+shift+s you can snip a screenshot of a part of the screen and it will be saved in the clipboard, so you can paste it wherever you want... besides, very disappointingly, in a folder. Sure, you can just put it in a chat and then re-download it, or just use the snipping tool. But is there a way to either paste the screenshot in the desktop/in a folder or save it there automatically? The other options are annoying.

    Automatically open Snip & Sketch editor after using snipping tool with Win+Shift+S

    You can open the Snip & Sketch app directly in "new" mode by right-clicking the app (on either the Start Menu App List, on the pinned tile, or on the Task Bar) and select "Take a new snip" from the Jump List menu.

    The Clipboard History feature (October 2018 update) will save and list all items sent to the clipboard, including any snips. These items can then be accessed through Win+V. The hotkey will also take you to the setup for Clipboard History if the feature is not enabled.

    As for your other concerns, I am not sure of how to open editor automatically after sniping using the hotkeys. But the following information could be of use.

    If you take a snip using Shift+Win+S, the Snip & Sketch App's notification should be accessible at the top of the Action/Notification Center side bar even if there's no pop-up. The Notification Center can be accessed through Win+A or through the Notification icon at the end of the task bar (Windows Tips). Clicking on the Snip & Sketch's notification there will launch the editor with the latest snip.

    You could thus use Shift+Win+S for a snip, then Win+A and click on the notification to launch editing.

    Snipping Tool Win+Shift+S not taking capture and saving.

    Hi Daniel, I'm Graeme, an independent adviser here to help.

    If your Snipping Tool isn't working correctly, you could try resetting it. Here are the steps to do so:

    - Click Start and type "apps & features".

    - Select Apps & Features.

    - Find the Snipping Tool (or Snip & Sketch) in the list and select it.

    - Click Advanced Options

    - Click Reset.

    After you've done this, try rebooting and using the Snipping Tool again.

    Please let me know if you need further support! Thanks!

  4. How on earth do I save my win+shift+s snips on desktop?

    Pasting from clipboard

    As an alternative to Dave's suggestion, you could do this:

    1. Create a desktop shortcut for snippingtool.exe.
    2. Drag it onto the Task Bar.
    3. To take a snapshot, use snippingtool instead of Win+Shift+S
    4. Save the snapshot while in Snipping Tool.
