  1. Snipping Tool (WIN + Shift + S): Screenshot save location?


    When I took a screenshot, Windows told me I wanted to try: WIN + Shift + S


    So, I did. But, where is this screenshot other than the clipboard?

    I can paste directly into OneNote, or whatever image program, but I don't want that. I want a timestamped screenshot or the "Shortcut" is not for what I need to do.


    Is there a fourth button in the combo to actually save the screenshot? This is so weird to me. Not an improvement. Would be an improvement IF it were saved automatically. Is there really not a folder somewhere that these shots are stored automatically?

    :)

    How do I save snip screenshots as .JPG?

    Hi,





    You can save a screenshot directly as a .jpeg file in the Snipping tool. You can do that by following these steps:


    • Press File.

    • Select Save As....

    • Choose a File name.

    • Select the drop-down besides Save as type.

    • Select JPEG file.

    • Press Save.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards.

    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!

    Snipping Tool (WIN + Shift + S): Screenshot save location?

    Problem With Snipping Tool & Desktop


    No, that is not true.

    Snipping Tool does not even have a "Save" button or menu option, both the button (diskette icon) and menu option are "Save As". However you save, selecting the button from the File menu, you can save the screenshots wherever you want to.

    The Pictures folder is just the default folder shown as a suggestion when you save but the file will not be automatically saved there. Selecting any other folder, like for instance Desktop, will then become the new default suggested location; Snipping Tool remembers this and next time you save a screenshot it will be saved in this new location if no other location is selected.

    Short: It is absolutely not true that Snipping Tool automatically saves in Pictures folder.
