PDF Snipping Toolfor Windows



Capture screenshots and edit them

Snipping Tool takes the hassle out of capturing and cutting your screens. You can customize your screenshots and share them easily, improving your work with the many image editing features.

Copy and paste right from your screen, as much or as little as you want

Snipping Tool has added a lot of useful functions to make taking screenshots more convenient and productive.

Instead of using the Print Screen button, just one click on the compact panel and you’d have your image. You can grab your screen from anywhere, even when you’re streaming a movie, or playing a game.

Once you’ve downloaded and started the app, it remains active. When you want to capture the screen, simply click on the icon. Your images get saved to the location of your choice, so your progress does not get interrupted. Unlike the conventional method of printing your screen, just drag your cursor through a specific area you want, and the app crops a screenshot of that portion.

You can edit all your photos right in the app and enhance the color of your shot. You can also remove certain parts of your image without interfering with its dimensions. Blur out sensitive information on the screen with this tool.

Snipping Tool supports all the major social media platforms. Upload and share your screenshots right after you finish editing with one click. This function does not hinder your work progress as it is smooth and swift. You can also save more time by setting a capturing interval where the app continually grabs and saves what’s on your screen.

Where can you run this program?

You can run Snipping Tool on Windows Vista and later with any capacity. It does require you to have Java runtime environment.

Is there a better alternative?

Not for this level of convenience. You can try different types of software that record your screen without editing tools if streaming is your kind of work.
