Windows 10/11 Snip & Sketch
Windows 10 introduced an update to the Windows 7 "Snipping Tool", bringing a more streamlined experience and a new keyboard shortcut.
With this method, you do not need to paste the image data into a program like Microsoft Paint, as it creates a file directly on your computer.
Press the Windows, Shift and S keys on your keyboard.
Your screenshot is now in your clipboard.
Many apps and websites allow you to paste images directly from the clipboard.
Extra: Save as a file
Once you have taken the screenshot, a notification will appear with your image.
Click on the image to open the Snip & Sketch app, and click the save button.
Note: While in the Snip & Sketch app, you can also draw on the image using the pen and highlighter tools.
