Windows 10 is Getting a New Screenshot Tool Called 'Screen Sketch'

Anyone who's ever had to frequently use Windows' stock 'Snipping Tool' to take screenshots knows the absurd inconvenience of that app as compared to the screenshot system on rival operating systems, but Windows 10 is slated to get an updated screenshot tool called 'Screen Sketch' that promises to bring it up to speed. The tool creates a hotkey for taking screenshots, vastly improving on the several-click process that was embedded in the Snipping Tool.

Screen Sketch's biggest benefit is that it has a hotkey for instant use (winkey + shift + S), but it has even more functionality than competing operating systems' screenshot tools. Screen Sketch will also trigger a notification every time a screenshot is taken, and users can click on that notification to open up editing tools if they want to mark up their screenshot.
