Quickly capture and edit screenshots in Windows 10 with Microsoft Snip

Microsoft has a new tool currently in beta that should prove useful for those who enjoy taking a screenshot or two and subsequently editing them with some drawings or audio. Microsoft Snip lets you capture screenshots and then draw some lines over them before sharing with friends and whatnot. If you'd rather use your voice, you can even animate things and turn the screenshot into a tutorial or walkthrough video.

Once installed, Microsoft Snip sits at the top of your desktop environment, and will appear should you hover over it with a mouse. You have the option to capture individual windows or the entire screen, depending on your setup. Should you have a webcam attached to your PC, Snip can even capture photos for editing. Perfect for sharing stuff from Windows 10.

Everything is stored locally (unless otherwise instructed). Animated edits with audio will be converted to MP4 files, but everything can be hosted online and embedded on other websites, should you wish to use said functionality. Give it a go and see how you get on.
