As far as I know there is no way to "re-snip the previously snipped area" using the snipping tool. The best way to achieve a similar functionality with the snipping tool is to the Window Snip or Full-Screen Snip available in the Mode Menu. Clicking the same window showing a different section of code etc. and trimming it down to the section you want. ...

Not without installing special software. System hot keys must be in the following format: Ctrl + Alt + Another key Not all keys may be used as the last key, so just experiment to find what works. Unfortunately Print Screen doesn't. I just use Ctrl-alt-p

User 3DWizard has a nice AutoHotKey script which I slightly modified to helped me solve this problem. Hold Shift inside the Snipping Tool window to restrict the mouse to horizontal movement.

Whenever I've needed to do this, I set a delay on the snipping tool - usually between 3 and 5 seconds. This gives me enough time to click on "New" and then open the drop-down menu before the screenshot is taken.

Ah, I found one way! Damn easy and did not think of it until now: When entering the filename just add .png in the end. This requires no hack, and is kind of fast (< 1 second). Update 2018 Since the hex edit suggested did not work out for me, I changed the screenshot software and use now Lightscreen which is tiny and handy, and provides quick shortcuts (...

Traditional screenshot methods will not work for Modern UI apps. To take a screenshot of a Modern UI app, press Windows + Print Screen. This will save a screenshot to My Pictures\Screenshots.

You can determine if you need to call SnippingTool.exe from the Sysnative or the windows32 based on whether autohotkey is running as a Wow64 process or not.

Using Windows 10, Win+PrtScrn will do a full shot and save to your pictures folder. Also, Ctrl+PrtScrn will let you make a selection.

I have not found a way to get multiple instances open. At least I can't find a way natively. Getting it to be active is another story. Pin it to your taskbar, and then use Win plus the number (key) that represents where it is on the taskbar. Example: In this example I'd hit Win+5 If you hit that shortcut while it's already open it switches to the ...

I used a simple AutoHotkey script to emulate what the Windows 7 version did. #s:: Run, "C:\windows\system32\SnippingTool.exe" WinWaitActive, ahk_class Microsoft-Windows-Tablet-SnipperToolbar { send ^{PrintScreen} } return Note #s (Win + s) shortcut can be anything you choose. Like all AHK scripts you want running all the time, add it to the startup ...

AFAIK, this is not possible, not with Windows Snipping tool!

That's not a watermark. It looks like it's just the menu option you select to take a full-screen snip not fading away completely before the screenshot is taken and ending up overlaid on it. From some quick testing, it only seems to happen on the first full-screen snip you take after opening Snipping Tool. At least I was unable to reproduce it on subsequent ...

I'm running Windows 10 1607 (build 14393.105) and the Snipping Tool does NOT clear the clipboard on close. Based on your explanation of the chain of events, I think I see what's going on. You copy TEXT to the clipboard. You then capture something with the Snipping Tool (which, by default automatically copies that IMAGE to the clipboard (replacing the text ...

Coupled with Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007's response to be able to quickly launch and return to Snipping Tool, I like to use an application to stage my captures.

But then I got tired of not being able to customize ...
