Is Print Screen or Snipping Better?


Print Screen is built into the keyboard, so it’s quick. When your computer’s crashing and your IT folks invariably ask “What did you see?” use Print Screen.


Snipping Tool is great for free-form snipping and immediately emailing the image. To get Snipping Tool, go to the Start menu and search for “Snipping Tool.” Then be sure to “pin to taskbar” so snipping is simple.
