How to Add or Remove Screen Snip Context Menu in Windows 10


Starting with Windows 10 build 17661, a new Screen Snip feature has been added to Windows 10 to be able to quickly snip and share a screenshot.

You can snip a rectangle, something a bit more freeform, or full screen and it will go straight to your clipboard. If thatís all you need, you can take it from there. Want more, though? Immediately after taking a snip youíll now get a notification that will take you and your snip to the Screen Sketch app where you can annotate and share away.

Starting with Windows 10 Insider Skip Ahead build 18219, Screen Sketch app has been updated to version 10.1807.2286.0 and renamed to Snip & Sketch.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove a Screen Snip context menu for the current user or all users in Windows 10.

A screen snip is saved to the clipboard by default.
