The only thing I'm not sure about is if there's a quick way to save snips.

Or are they automatically saved somewhere?

I bet next you're gonna tell us you didn't know holding ctrl while pressing arrow keys causes the cursor to jump word to word rather than character to character!

with snipping tool theres a save button

with win+shift+s it usually gives a notification that you saved it to your clipboard and if you click that i think it gives you an editing window that you can save from (or just paste it somewhere else and save it from wherever)

but Windows + Printscreen does the saving for you (Win+Alt+Printscrn to snap just the active window)

into pictures > screenshots (unless you change the location under Screenshots > Properties > Location)

oh wait Win+Alt+Prsc goes to Videos > Captures since it's built with the Gamebar (Win+G) with recording features (Win+Alt+R)

Tell me you guys have heard of ShareX?

Program that let's you take a screenshot ONLY of the area you want to have copied and uploads it to imgur automatically for you.

with snipping to clipboard it's not really far off from the upload portion anyways since you can typically paste your clipboard into imgur or even gamefaqs

we get these threads every so often and every time somebody shills ShareX, apparently forgetting that snipping/the shortcut lets you choose the area

It's simply not faster. I click shareX, crop what I want, click, and I have a link for myself. I don't need to go to a separate website to do it.

Highly highly recommend ShareX to everyone!

i don't use anything that doesn't allow direct pasting of images so having a link is actually slower

Wait, GameFAQs lets you paste images into the post box for uploading now? When the image feature started they didn't let you do that, you had to save it and upload it with a file name.

I remember it being the case for a while now

the picture in the post quoted was indeed posted as you see there from a simple Snip -> Ctrl+V -> Post Message



again

win-shift-s was a moderately recent discovery for me. I was confused for a while how some people seemed to very adeptly post stuff to discord until I figured that out. I've used it very consistently for the last year or so.

You did indeed stab me in the back. However, you are only level one, whilst I am level 50. That means I should remain uninjured.
