Use Print Screen Button for Windows 10 Snip and Sketch

Eventually, the old snipping tool introduced in Windows 7 will be replaced with Snip and Sketch, so it would not be a bad idea to get used to the replacement sooner than later.

If you are on Windows 10 1809 or newer, you may notice a message in Snipping Tool like this:

To open Snip & Sketch, click on the Start menu and type in “Snip & Sketch” and click Enter to open it.

Once open, click the 3 dots in the upper right, and click on Settings. You should then see a SETTINGS window that says “Use PrtScrn to open screen snipping”. Go ahead and click on that link and click YES on the following prompt.

Scroll down on the next KEYBOARD SETTINGS window until you see PRINT SCREEN SHORTCUT. Turn this option on and then close the window.

When you are ready to take a screenshot using the new method, all you have to do now is hit the PRT SCRN button your on your keyboard instead of using a crazy keyboard shortcut or having an application pinned somewhere which may get lost in the daily grind.
