Starting with the Windows 10 Creators Update, OneNote’s popular screenshot feature has been made an Operating System feature — you can capture a specific region of your screen to the clipboard using the Win + Shift + S shortcut key.

Screenshot a Portion of the Screen

Press Winkey + Shift + S. The screen will be covered with an overlay and mouse cursor turns into a plus (+) symbol, which indicate that the capture mode is on.

Since Windows 10 v1809, you’ll see the following bar at the top. From there, choose one of the snipping modes: Rectangular snip, Freeform snip, or Fullscreen snip.

If you choose Rectangular or Freeform snip, select a region on the screen. This copies the particular portion to the clipboard.

Open Paint or any other image editor of your choice and paste (Ctrl +  Predators Nashville Jersey China Nashville V) the image from the clipboard.

Predators Nashville Jersey China Nashville Note that this feature replaces the one in OneNote 2016.

Winkey + Shift + S is powered by Snip & Sketch in v1809 & higher

In Windows 10 v1809 and higher, the Winkey + Shift + S is powered by the new Snip & Sketch feature. You’re shown the 3 snipping options when you use the keystroke. Snip & Sketch is the new tool which will replace the legacy Snipping Tool in future Windows 10 builds.

Winkey + Shift + S uses the Snipping Tool in Creators Update

In Windows 10 Creators Update, the  Winkey + Shift + S runs the Snipping Tool (in non-interactive mode) under the hood, using a new command-line switch. The following is what’s executed behind the scenes when you use the Winkey + Shift + S keystroke in the Creators Update.

As said earlier, this has changed in v1809 where the keystroke is powered by Snip & Sketch. For more information, see Using the built-in Snip & Sketch app in the article A Complete Guide to Taking Screenshots in Windows 10

Launch Screen snip by pressing PrintScreen

If you think the three keys combo Winkey + Shift + SToddler Toddler Jersey Yankee Yankee is tough to operate, you can choose to have your PrtScn key open the new snipping bar, instead of Winkey + Shift + S. To do so:

  • Click Start → Settings → Ease of Access → Keyboard → Use the PrtScn button to open screen snipping

If the above setting is enabled, your third-party screen capture tool, if installed any, may complain that it’s unable to register hotkey – PrintScreen. That’s normal, as only one application can register the hotkey at a time.

More information

To take a screenshot of the entire screen and save it to a PNG file in your Pictures\Screenshots folder, you usually use the WinKey + Predators Nashville Jersey China Nashville PrntScrn keys. Unfortunately, there is no way to auto-save a selected screen area to a file without using a third-party screen capture tool. Snipping Tool can be a handy tool to capture a screen region, but it doesn’t automatically save the capture to a file.

Where are the Screen Shots stored? Since my upgrade, I can not find any of my screenshots (which used to be in OneNote).

  • I see now that I’ve LOST all of the screenshots that used to automatically be stored in OneNote. Is there a way to bring this feature back? I liked the fact that I could take screen shots and they would *automatically* be stored in OneNote. Is there a SIMPLE workaround? (The simplest solution is to return it to OneNote. The solution above is inconvenient.)

  • Appreciate the tip! I take it there’s no way to have it automatically save to a file like you can on macOS using Command – Shift – 4?

  • Predators Nashville Jersey China Nashville I guess its progress for windows ui but its a big step back for onenote users, now I need 3 extra clicks and keyboard input just to store a screenshot, way to go microsoft 🙁
