You can capture part or all of your PC screen, add notes, save the snip, or email it right from the Snipping Tool window.
Open Snipping Tool by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tapping Search (or if you're using a mouse, pointing to the lower-right corner of the screen, moving the mouse pointer up, and then clicking Search), entering Snipping Tool in the search box, and then tapping or clicking Snipping Tool.
You will mostly use the Rectangular Snip option - drag the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.
Save a snip
After you capture a snip, tap or click the Save Snip button. In the Save As dialog box, enter a file name, location, and file type, and then tap or click Save.
On a Mac
