Most people are used to the Snipping Tool, which has been around since Windows Vista. However, this tool does not automatically save screenshots, you have to save them manually, which is tedious. Therefore, in this article we present how the Snip & Sketch tool works , and other shortcuts to take screenshots in Windows 10.

After taking a screenshot, in the same tool you will be able to edit the image, that is, you will be able to write or draw with the pencil, pen and other tools that are in the upper part of the window.
