Windows 10, which is now near to polishing stage before final release, came with many new features and enhancements; that includes the UI, settings and apps. It’s still in Technical Preview version with the latest build no: 10162.


In this post, we are going to know the latest changes happened in the Windows Snipping Tool, which many users uses most of the days to take screenshots.



Windows Snipping Tool – I think all or most of us are already familiar with it. This tool is used to take screenshot of the desktop/applications (either full screen or a part of it). In the new version of Windows 10 Technical Preview, Microsoft came up with a “delay” feature embedded in it by which you can now delay capturing the screen by 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 seconds.


So, if you are willing to take a screenshot after a short delay of 0 – 5 seconds, just click the “Delay” button, which will open up a small menu in the screen. Select the desired delay value and proceed with taking a new screenshot.


Here is the UI of the enhanced tool:
