  2. Opening Screenshots in Snipping Tool/Snip & Sketch

    Hi,

    I am Sumit, an Independent Advisor and a 2-Year Windows Insider MVP here to help.

    The behavior you see is expected-Now taking screenshots would automatically copy them to the clipboard and would not open a new Window like happened with snipping tool.

    A notification, should generate however to open the editor if needed. See the screenshot.

    A better way would be to open Snip and Sketch app using app and select New Snip.

    Snip & sketch

    Hello FrankEngstrom,

    Thank you for updating me that information. If you mean the snip and sketch? Based on your description the snipping tool is crashing?

    Please try to reset Snip and Sketch

    Press Start then search Apps and Features

    Select Snip and Sketch on the list

    Click Terminate then Reset

    If it doesn't work, Please try to create a new administrator account then check if everything is working.

    Sincerely



    Independent Advisor

    Windows 10 screenshot tool snip&sketch not working

    Snip & Sketch

    It's the Snipping Tool that's being phased out, not Snip & Sketch. FWIW, I just used the latter tool and was able to paste the snip into a Word (Office 365) document. There was a point in the past when for reasons unknown, opening Word would clear the
    clipboard. If you're using an older version, you might want to try opening the document first, before taking a screenshot.

    If you prefer to use Snipping Tool, all you have to do (as I suggested earlier) is open the Start Menu and type snip.
