Use Snipping Tool to capture screen shots
Sometimes the easiest way to make a copy of something is to take a snapshot of your screen—this is what Snipping Tool does. Use it to save and share news stories, movie reviews, or recipes.
You can capture part or all of your PC screen, add notes, save the snip, or email it right from the Snipping Tool window.
To open Snipping Tool
Open Snipping Tool by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tapping Search (or if you're using a mouse, pointing to the lower-right corner of the screen, moving the mouse pointer up, and then clicking Search), entering Snipping Tool in the search box, and then tapping or clicking Snipping Tool.
You can capture the following types of snips:
Free-form Snip. Draw any shape around an object with your finger, mouse, or tablet pen.
Rectangular Snip. Drag the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.
Window Snip. Choose a window—like a browser window or a dialog box.
Full-screen Snip. Capture the entire screen.
Capture a snip
In Snipping Tool, tap or click the arrow next to the New button, choose the kind of snip you want, and then pick the area of your screen that you want to capture. The snip is automatically copied to the Snipping Tool window.
