How to use Microsoft Snip in Windows 10

How to use Microsoft Snip in Windows 10

0.0/7 rating (0 votes)

A while back, Microsoft released an amazing tool to take a screenshot, Microsoft Snip. It is not like any other simple screenshot tool but, it takes the screenshot to a whole new level. The powerful annotating features in Microsoft Snip will not only let you edit and highlight or mark a specific thing on an image but you can also record a voice message on your screenshots. So, the final screenshot can be saved in the form of MP4 videos which later can be uploaded on the website or you can directly Email them using Outlook application.

Although this tool is currently in beta version but it still provides very promising results. You can’t only take screenshot, but it will also provide you a white board to write and demonstrate something. Last but not the least feature will let you take and edit photos using the webcam on your laptop or rare camera on your windows tablet.

Conclusion

Although Microsoft Snip is an advanced software to take screenshot but it still has limitations. First of all, it is in beta version so some users may have stability issues. Apart from that, it doesn’t have even one photo editing function, you can’t resize the images, crop them or rotate them. Let’s wait for the final version and see what changes Microsoft will bring in it.
