I am just curious with the Windows clipboard. I use printscreen to capture a screenshot. Then I use the same command to capture another screenshot.

How exactly do I access the previous screenshots? Is that overwritten with the new one?


A program called Snapshoter will help you achieve this:


Snapshoter is a portable screen capture tool which offers all the essential screen capture features with an option to save them in unlimited screenshot stack. It provides the utility of saving as many screenshots as you want in a list which can be pasted with either a simple drag and drop or by using default Paste hotkey combination; Ctrl + V.

Yes, the old screenshot is overwritten when creating the second screenshot. Use the snipping tool instead. Here you can save the picture.
