    Snipping tool better in 9901


    A minor change in 9901 - snipping tool now guesses what you want. Just click on new and you no longer (as in 8) have to specify window or full screen. It will select a window snip from partially obscured window which is pretty cool.

    Rather bizarrely it will try to take a snip of the start menu even if it isn't open but that's a mistake I guess.

    I'm finding quite a lot of nice little UI improvements in 9901. Will be interesting to see what the Jan build includes.

    Disable Snipping Tool

    How do I disable the snipping tool?

    I use a much better program than what snipping tool does and the shortcut key gets in the way of a third program.

    Thanks,

    John

    You can try it in a VM - seems quite stable to me. Just have a look around for J_CCSA_X64FRE_EN-US_DV5.iso

    This is a useful improvement. But you still cannot snip context menus with the Windows snipping tool. That's why I use Jing which I can trigger from a function key. Example:

    Using the help instructions for snipping tool I was able to snip a context menu in windows 7 so I tried the same on 10 and it works the same for me.

    I did use Charlies method on earlier OSs, but turned to the alternative of having Paint open, taking a print Screen shot and pasting and cutting from there. Maybe a little more laborious, but I am used to the procedure now and it only takes a few seconds. I do have Snagit, but that also has some limitations.
    Certainly going to have a look at Jing, it looks interesting. Tks for the heads up, WHS

    The Paint method is good and allows you to make annotations, etc. But I prefer Jing because it is so simple. The very small downside is that Jing will be another startup program and it uses 50 to 60MB of RAM. But that is peanuts.
     
  14. Most of the problem with jing is it's not a freebie
    Screen capture keys are free *Smile
    I did notice though using the snipping tool in prior builds produced a popup message "you have apps that do this" :/
