On Windows 10, you can hold WIN+SHIFT+S to open up the Snipping Tool without the need to run the program manually. It also copies the screenshot straight to your clipboard, ready to be pasted.
A little known feature within Microsoft Edge is the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+S. This will open up Edge’s built-in screenshot tool, similar to snipping tool but it lets you mark up the image from within the browser without needing to save it or open the snipping tool (known as Snip & Sketch on Windows 11).
Hopefully this tip helps someone who stumbles across this post!
