Once you have taken a screenshot, you can easily edit it to add text, draw on it, or just crop it. The simplest way is to select the image using the pop-up notification that appears at the bottom of the screen. Follow these steps to easily edit your screenshots.

  1. Click on the screenshot pop-up in the bottom right corner of the screen after taking your screenshot.

  2. Select the editing tools you would like to use in the Snipping Tool. There are multiple tools you can use here, including a pen, highlighter, as well as ruler, and protractor tool. You can also crop the image and add writing via touch if your device has a touch screen.


By default, the Windows 11 Snipping Tool will automatically copy your most recent screenshot to your computer’s clipboard. This allows you to paste the image into instant messengers and other applications.

However, sometimes you may want to save an image so you can access it again later. To do this, you’ll need to open the screenshot in the Snipping Tool itself. Here’s how that works.

  1. Click or tap the screenshot pop-up in the bottom right corner of the screen.

  2. Locate the toolbar along the top of the Snipping Tool window and make any edits you need to make to the image.

  3. Finally, click the Save as an icon at the top to save the image. This icon looks like a floppy disk and can be found to the right of the magnifying glass.

  4. Once you’ve selected the Save icon, input a name for your screenshot and choose where you want to save it.
