I would like to mention a few things before getting to Andrew's post:
Microsoft is changing the name and functionality of the Snipping Tool for Windows 10 in an upcoming update. I use the Snipping Tool regularly to include screenshots in documentation. After the 1809 Feature Update was installed on my laptop, I noticed a warning the first time I opened the Snipping Tool. The warning basically states that the tool is moving, it will have improved features, and it will be called "Snip & Sketch."
Microsoft hasn't announced when the new version will be forced or what update will make the change permanent. After you get the 1809 Feature Update, you can still use the tool in its basic form. You can also click "Try Snip & Sketch" to start using the new features.
Here is the rest of Andrew's post...
