How to assign a keyboard shortcut for Snipping Tool

How to assign a keyboard shortcut for Snipping Tool

0.0/7 rating (0 votes)

Microsoft provided the screenshot program that is really perfect for Windows's users. With Windows Snipping Tool, you can easily take an area captures or entire screenshots and insert text, graphics, or any associated annotations then simply save them to your PC. You don't have to install any third-party tools to take a screenshot.

The Snipping Tool will let you take a screenshot through four different types of screenshots:

  • Free-form Snip: let you draw and grabs any unnatural area of the screen.
  • Rectangular Snip: let you move the pointer around with a rectangular shape.
  • Window Snip: allow you take an active window, just like a browser window, a program window, etc.
  • Full-screen snip: allow you can take a screenshot of the whole the screen.

The problem with Snipping Tool is that there aren't any keyboard shortcuts to open it on Windows 10, Windows 8.1 as well as Windows 7, of course, you have to process a lot of steps to open it from Start Menu or Windows Explorer whenever you want to take a screenshot.

If you are a regular user of the Snipping Tool program, you can easily create your own a keyboard shortcut to open it in seconds. In here, we want to show you the method for creating a keyboard shortcut for the Windows Snipping Tool.
