On Windows 10, Snip & Sketch is the default app for taking screenshots of the entire screen, active window, or region of the screen.
Usually, you can open the screen snipping tool from the Start menu, or using the Windows key + Shift + S keyboard shortcut, but if you want a more direct access, it’s also possible to map the tool to the Print Screen (PrtScrn) key on the keyboard.
Take screenshots using Print Screen key
To open the Snip & Sketch tools to take screenshots, use these steps:
Open Settings on Windows 10.
Click on Ease of Access.
Click on Keyboard.
Under the “Print Screen shortcut” section, turn on the Use the PrtScn button to open screen snipping toggle switch.
Once you complete the steps, if you have another application currently mapped to use the Print Screen button, you may need to restart your device to apply the settings.
After the changes have been applied, you can simply press the PrtScrn key on the keyboard to bring up the tool to take a snip or full screen capture of anything that you’re running in the desktop.
