Fn + PrtSc Snipping Tool - Changing to Snip & Sketch

Q: Fn + PrtSc Snipping Tool - Changing to Snip & Sketch

Hello all, Does Lenovo have plans to update the keyboard shortcut (or if we have the ability to change it ourselves) with the new Snip & Sketch program that the new Win 10 October update brings? Apparently old snipping tool will be going away. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Fn + PrtSc Snipping Tool - Changing to Snip & Sketch

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I have problem with P52 but suppose is related to all models with Win10 and PrtSc button. I would like to replace Snipping tool with Greenshot which is more usefull for me. Unfortunatelly I'm not able to find such option. I was able to disable Snipping Tool: https://www.top-password.com/blog/disable-snipping-tool-in-windows-10/ and I thought I would be able to use PrcSc key and Fn+PrtSc in Greenshot configuration, but it seems it is still trying to launch Snipping tool, which is blocked and I'm getting window which says Snipping tool was disabled... Any ideas how this could be modified? Many thanks and regards,Maciej

A:Snipping tool will not save the snip

If you snip then close, no it will not save. I am assuming you know this. When you click the save button, nothing happens? Or what?

Hello,

Just upgraded to Win 10 from Win 7. I am trying to like it . One of the annoyances I've found so far
is the snipping tool. When on Win 7, when I did my shortcut keys to open it, it would automatically go
into snipping mode so I could just move my mouse to create my snip. Now, it makes you select new and
what type you'd like. I have looked around the settings to make it act like it did when in Win7 but so far
no luck. Does anyone know how to make it just start like it did when using it before I upgraded?
I only have interest in creating a snip this way. Thanks

A:How to make snipping tool default to new snip

Yes, having to make that one extra click is surprisingly irritating. I was very happy using the tool when it was 'ready to snip' with the last used setting. If I occasionally wanted to capture a menu, I could with just a few more clicks. Having to press 'new snip' each and every time seems pointless, slow and cumbersome.

When I select Full Screen from the drop-down menu in Snipping Tool, it goes into Window Snip mode, but will not do a Full Screen Snip.

Guys,

An new update was made to Windows 10's Feedback Hub allowing additional sharing options. What I don't understand is how to use Snip and Sketch to Share Feedback in the Hub, and when you share Feedback, where does it go to, as Feedback Hub wanted to create a link and than copy the link to Snip and Sketch?

Also, what is the difference between sharing feedback and just leaving feedback in the Hub?

OK, this is annoying the heck out of me -

I want to show the properties of an icon, so I right click it and its properties show up, cool - however as soon as I click off of the Icon, to say, use the snip tool, the properties menu disappears. Thus I am unable to keep the properties menu open while attempting to capture it using the snip tool.

A:snip tool confusion

Hi Drew,

This is an easy one to solve, and, believe me, you're going to kick yourself. In order to capture these images where it isn't possible to use the Snipping Tool directly, click on PrtScrn (sometimes shown as PrintScreen) on your keyboard. This captures and stores in the clipboard everything showing on your screen, including opened property menus and dialogues. If you then open Paint you can use the Paste function to see the captured image. You can then use the Snipping Tool to select the appropriate section you require.

I used to be able to use the snip tool in conjunction with Cntrl Print screen, but it no longer works. This is useful to capture drop down or context menus that disappear when you try to use the snip tool by itself. I tried this on another computer, but it is not working there either. Did some kind of update disable this feature?

On my Windows 7 machine I was able to click the Snipping Tool from the tool bar and it would open automatically in rectangular snip mode. Now, with Windows 10 I have to click the Snipping Tool from the tool bar, snipping tool window opens, then I have to click on New and then finally select Rectangular snip. Is there a way to bypass the snipping tool window and go directly to rectangular snip mode like it used to do in Windows 7? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give me.

A:Snipping Tool

On all of my Windows 10 systems, when I run the snipping tool, all I have to click is "New" and I'm ready to capture. I've heard people complain about one extra mouse click, which always makes me laugh, but I don't have to select the shape. Sounds like you are clicking on the down arrow next the New button instead of on the new button itself.

I don't know what happened here, but my shortcut that points to the snipping tool turned into one of those generic icons - and it says that it can't find C:Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe... Sure enough, a check of \System32 shows it's not there. I didn't go in there... so I have no idea what happened here. It's not in the recycle bin either, so it didn't get accidentally deleted, at least not recently.

So, is it as simple as grabbing a copy of SnippingTool.exe from another installation and pasting it into \System32...? Any risk in this (aside from it not working if there were some dependencies that are also gone?)

If that doesn't work does sfc restore this?

Has anyone else noticed this bug with the Snipping Tool?



This is a Window snip of CPU-Z and I highlighted the name of the processor. Notice the blank area above the snip, and where the highlighted mark is. It is as though the highlighting and pen annotation are done on a separate layer which is superimposed on top of the image. Unfortunately, this layer seems to be out of alignment. Sometimes, the highlighter and pen don't seem to work.

And, anyone know how to get the Eraser to function like it should ?

The eraser will only erase things that you put in with the pen. It will not erase anything in the actual snip.

It is supposed to darken the screen while snipping. The actual snip should work well. If not, check that you have latest video driver from http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx

Alternatively, you can use ctrl+print screen to capture. Then paste into your favorite app like Photoshop or MS Paint. In PS, after capture, hit file | new.
