Windows 11 To Get New And Improved Snipping Tool

Microsoft Windows 11 has changed a number of tools that users are familiar with and now it's time for the snipping tool.

Microsoft has announced many changes to its apps with Windows 11 operating system and now it’s time for the Snipping Tool. While it will retain its cutting-edge skills, its look and feel has been changed.

Microsoft has teased a new version of the popular Snipping Tool for Windows 11 with the head of Microsoft’s Windows & Devices division, Panos Panay, sharing a video on Twitter. He tweeted, “Here is a first look at the new #Windows11 Snipping Tool. Coming to #WindowsInsiders soon! Great work from the team #pumped.”

In the 17-second video, a refreshed UI can be seen, which indicates that the two existing tools, Snipping Tool and Snip & Sketch, have been merged. Snip & Sketch had come out in Windows 10 and was thought to be a replacement for the old Snipping Tool. Presumably, the old ones will be gone, leaving the new ones to be rolled out with Windows 11.

The new Snipping Tool UI resembles the old Snip & Sketch, with some buttons being re-arranged. Panos Panay says Windows Insiders will be able to try the new Snipping Tool soon.
