First Batch of App Updates Arrived For Windows 11
Microsoft has revealed the first batch of updates to its Windows 11 applications, releasing the first set of updates for many apps that will be released with the new next-generation operating system.
Microsoft Windows 11 will be released in October 2021 and has also stated it will be making a free upgrade available to Windows 10 users early in 2022, although complete details on this have yet to be confirmed.
Windows 11 comes with a new Snipping Tool app merging and replacing both the classic Snipping Tool and Snip & Sketch apps providing one app with the “best experiences of both apps in the next evolution of screen capture for Windows” explains Microsoft.
The Snipping Tool for Windows 11 includes new visuals that build off the classic app with added functionality like the WIN + SHIFT + S keyboard shortcut from Snip & Sketch and richer editing. We’re also introducing a new settings page for Snipping Tool. Taking a screenshot is super easy using the WIN + SHIFT + S keyboard shortcut! This will bring up the snipping menu with options to choose from including Rectangular Snip, Freeform Snip, Windows Snip, and Fullscreen Snip.”
** Note: If you have notifications turned off or Focus Assist on, you will not receive a notification pop-up after taking a screenshot. Your screenshot will still be copied to your clipboard, however. This will be fixed in a future update.
