Microsoft renews tool for screenshots in test version Windows 10




Microsoft has provided build 17661 of the Windows 10 Insider Preview, codenamed Redstone 5, to testers of the OS. The software includes new functions for Screen Sketch, the program for creating and editing screenshots.

Screen Sketch is part of Ink Workspace with Windows 10, but from the next update of the OS, which is released in September or October, it is a separate app, which should be updated via the Microsoft Store. Microsoft positions the app in addition to a new snipping toolbar. Users can call up the toolbar with the key combination WIN + Shift + S and save the entire screen or part of it as an image to the clipboard.

You will then receive a notification that the image can be edited in Screen Sketch. Buttons from a stylus can also be linked to making a screenshot. It also works via the Print Screen key and a ‘Screen snip’ button that Microsoft adds to the Action Center.

New in build 17661 is further that Task View, including Timeline, receives a Fluent Design view and therefore displays a semi-transparent background. Furthermore, Microsoft Windows Defender Security Center simply renames Windows Security and Focus Assist automatically switches on as soon as a gamer starts a full-screen game. This function ensures that the player is not bothered with notifications.
