Windows Snipping Tool - Replaces "print screen"


Have you seen the new "Snipping Tool" in Windows 10?  It's REALLY handy.  Now instead of hitting the print screen button, opening a graphics program, pasting the image, then cropping it and saving it, this tool does it all in a few less clicks.



It's found under Windows Accessories in your start menu.  I dragged it to the right and created a new tile for it, as you can see above.  You could also drag it down as a short cut in the bottom toolbar.


To use it, click on the app, and a little tiny box pops up.  Select the part of the screen you want to crop, then name your save.

That's it.  SUPER quick.
