  1. Setting default shape with “Snipping Tool”


    Im just changing over from Windows 7 to Windows 10. One of my favorite Apps is the Snipping Tool.


    Is there a way to set your preferred (default) shape / Mode in Windows 10? Seems like a few extra unnecessary clicks for a basic operation.


    Thank you!

    :)

    Is there a way to apply shapes and text in Windows Snipping Tool?

    Windows Snipping tool drawing and delay features are great, but I often find myself trying to write on snips, and drawing arrows.

    So from time to time i'm forced to copy paste to Microsoft power point, turning this into a two program step.

    Is there a way to enable shapes, and text in snipping tool, or some sort of plug in?

    Your post is unclear. Please post a step-by-step description of what you are doing, e.g. like so:

    • Open the snipping tool
    • Click "New"
    • etc.

    Setting default shape with “Snipping Tool”

    Snipping tool - change default back to save as jpg.

    On a new computer with Windows 10, the snipping tool's default is to save as a png file. I save all my snips as jpg files. It is a pain to have to change each one I save. Is there a way to change the default to save as jpg. I have looked to try to
    change the default settings, but snipping tool is not on that list.
