Snipping Tool in Windows 10 Now Lets You Capture Pop Up Menus with Delay Option

Windows 10 -
Windows 10 is full of subtle changes for the better.

One small but important change is a very good enhancement to the Snipping Tool.

The Snipping Tool lets you capture a screenshot, called a "snip", of any part of your computer screen and then save the image.

This can be important if you need to document something that is showing on the screen for a technical issue or if you are capturing part of the screen for a presentation or detailed instructions.

Since its introduction in Windows Vista, there has been one drawback with the bundled Snipping Tool.

 A screen capture could not be taken if the mouse was holding down a dropdown menu or during some other screen actions or popup menus.

The upgrade fixes this by allowing you to set a 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 second delay before the capture begins..

Just select how many seconds delay you want, let's say 5, then perform the screen action.  When the time delay happens, you can then capture the part of screen as normal.

This is a great but important enhancement that makes using Windows 10 even better.
