For the Windows user seeking to take a screenshot, there is no lack of options. Most notably, many keyboards today offer a Print Screen key that allows the user to capture an image of their entire display. Having said this, there are better options, such as the platform’s integrated Snip & Sketch tool, with its greater functionality and greater ease of use.

How to Use Snip & Sketch

Snip & Sketch is a utility built into Windows, providing a user with four screenshot-taking options, called up by pressing Windows Key+Shift+S. These options consist of the following:

  1. A basic box selection, allowing you to click and drag to encompass your selection
  2. A freeform selection, allowing you to draw out your boundary
  3. Window snip, allowing you to select an active monitor to screenshot
  4. Fullscreen snip, taking the place of the Print Screen key, allowing you to take a picture of all your monitors simultaneously

This way, you have access to a wider range of utilities that are commonly useful, particularly in the workplace.
