Snipping Tools allow you to snip, or in other words, capture the screen of your PC. Basically, it is just a way of taking screenshots on your Windows PC.

Fortunately, your Windows 10 PC comes with the feature that lets you take screenshots without any third-party apps. You have actually two ways to take screenshots - either you can use the PrtSc button on your keyboard or you can use the built-in Snipping tool to capture screenshots on your PC.
