Download Snip And Sketch Save Location Background. To automatically save snip & sketch screenshots though, you have to interact with it. The windows 10 snip & sketch app is a microsoft store (uwp) app, so it does not have a traditional .exe file or location that can be accessed to create a hotkey.
The screenshots are saved on the clipboard, so you can paste them immediately into an email or word document, or you can save them as jpgs. The screenshots are not saved as an image automatically. Known as snip & sketch, this app can take a shot of the entire screen, a rectangular section, or a freeform area that you draw.
Microsoft is deprecating the snipping tool for screenshots and consolidating it with snip & sketch which is just as easy to use but more features.
I have turned auto copy to clipboard off but it still shows the snip saved to clipboard window. If i take a snip, it simply copies it to the clipboard instead of saving it as an image. With the new snip & sketch tool, i can't find the option to set where snips are saved. If you want to annotate the snip or save it into a file, you need to click the snip & sketch notifications in action center.
