    How Turn On or Off Use Print Screen Key to Launch Screen Snipping 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.

    If you like, you can use the Print Screen key to launch screen snipping.

    Turn On or Off Use Print Screen Key to Launch Screen Snipping in Settings

    Hi Brink,

    I don't have this setting in option #1 and option #2 doesn't work for me. Do you think it's the version of windows that I'm running "Enterprise"? Do you know of a work around?

    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
