Microsoft continues to add new tools to help you take screenshots in Windows. Here’s a look at the Snipping Tool.

One of my favorite free tools, Microsoft, built into Windows 7 and Windows Vista, is the Snipping Tool. The Snipping tool essentially lets you take screenshots or “snips” of your screen, add limited annotations to the screenshot, then email or save the file so you can share it or store it for later. Although not as powerful as a pro, paid tools like Snagit or the screenshot tool built into Office 2010, overall, the Snipping Tool does just fine if you’re only looking to capture screenshots vs. creating a screencast (video).


Although the tool has been around since the days of Windows Vista, I discovered we haven’t talked about it here on sarakhanov.com yet, so I thought I’d take 10 minutes and give you a quick Screenshot Tour showing you where you can find it as well as a few of its features.

The Snipping Tool in Windows 10

Note: The Snipping Tool is also built into Windows 10. You can also get more advanced options for screenshots by using the Snip & Sketch Tool in Windows 10. To access the Snipping to in Windows 10, hit the Windows key and type: snipping tool. Or, you can also find it in the Accessories Folder. It then works virtually identical to what it did on Windows 7.

The great thing about this tool is it’s free and straightforward to use once you know it exists.
