The Windows 11 Snipping Tool, a pre-installed application in the operating system that allows users to take screenshots and record the screen, is about to receive an update that will enable users to add shapes to their screenshots. This new functionality, discovered by user @PhantomOfEarth, allows users to be more creative with their screenshots and reduces dependence on third-party applications.
The update, which has not been officially released yet, will allow users to add shapes such as squares, circles, lines, and arrows to their screenshots. Additionally, they can change the colors of these shapes and enable or disable their fill. Users will also be able to customize outlines with options for thickness and color.
The feature is already being tested in some Windows 11 Insider versions
Although the update has not been officially announced by Microsoft, @PhantomOfEarth claims that the functionality is already operational in version 11.2312.33.0 of the Snipping Tool, the latest version for Insiders. Therefore, the update is expected to be rolled out to Windows Insider users shortly, possibly alongside the next preview version of Windows 11.
This update is a further step in the evolution of the Windows 11 Snipping Tool, which has already incorporated features such as screen recording and optical character recognition (OCR). With the addition of shapes to screenshots, the Snipping Tool becomes an even more appealing alternative to established screenshot applications like ShareX or Snagit.
