How to Use the Screen Snipping Tool in Windows 11

Windows 11 has a new Snipping Tool app that lets you capture anything on your screen easily and quickly. You can use different modes to select a rectangle, a window, the full screen, or a free-form shape.

To open the Snipping Tool app, you can search for it in the Start menu, or use the following keyboard shortcut:

    • [Windows logo key + Shift + S]

After you select a mode (there are 4) and create a screenshot, it will open in the Snipping Tool editor. There you can crop, highlight, draw, or write on your image. You can also save it as a PNG file to use later or simply copy it to your clipboard to share it with others via chat or email.
