In Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft is adding a lot of new features to the operating system. But a few changes made to classic apps were unexpected. The Snipping Tool got an updated user interface.
In Windows 10 build 15014, Snipping Tool got a separate button for the capture action. Previously, it was the same button which sets the capture mode.
Now the capture mode got a dedicated button. Here is how it looks.
Also, it got a new icon.
The Snipping Tool was part of Windows XP Tablet PC Edition but went mainstream after it was included in Windows Vista. It is able to capture screenshots of a window, of a screen area or the whole screen contents. Once you capture an image, you can add an annotation and save your capture to a *.png, *.jpg or *.gif file. The tool did not change much until Windows 10, where it got a Delay feature. Windows 10 Creators Update will be the first release of Windows 10 where such significant changes will be made to this app.
