Windows 10 Snipping Tool Screenshot sharing

Windows 10 Snipping Tool Screenshot sharing

Saroku
New member | Level 2

If I press Print Screen, it shares the screen with dropbox and it automatically gets uploaded to the Screenshot Folder.

But this doesn't work if I use the sniping tool (Windows + Shift + S) to make screenshots.

Is there a workaround to make Dropbox save the screenshots that are made with the snippin tool too?

That's not a function of Dropbox. You'd need to see what options the Snipping Tool has for saving the screenshots.

Hi @Saroku, while it isn't possible to use the snipping tool that way with Dropbox, there is a new feature called Dropbox Capture.

It does allow you to select a part of the screen to add it to your account, as well as marking it up a little.
