Microsoft rebranded its Screen Sketch app as Snip and Sketch to replace its existing built-in Windows Snipping Tool. The Snip & Sketch app features a modern UI and extra features that also supports pens and users can start a snip by simply clicking the back of the stylus.

Snip and Sketch can be launched directly from the quick actions in the Action Center or you can also launch it by pressing the PrtScn key. The latest version adds more convenience while taking a screenshot.

The new screenshot tool in Windows 10 has received a new update today. The latest update brings some new features to the application.

Microsoft has introduced “Delayed” feature in Snip and Sketch with the latest update. You would need to first launch the app and then configure the delay time from the new menu. However, the delay feature cannot be configured from the toolbar while taking a snip.

Microsoft’s earlier Snipping Tools already had a predefined delay feature which allowed for 3 or 10 seconds of delay. The new update also brings in new snipping options in the jumplist.

You will be able to take a screenshot by right-clicking on the Snip & Sketch icon on the taskbar. You can either take the snapshot immediately or delay it.

The Redmond Giant is also testing a new autosaving feature for the Snip and Sketch application internally which lets you autosave the screenshot you take.

The company is also working on adding keyboard shortcuts in the future which allow you to take the screenshot by setting up different hotkeys. The latest update comes with version 10.1807.2286.0 and is available to download from the Microsoft Store.
