The new feature in the Windows 11 Snipping Tool is here to revolutionize your workflow.

But how does it work? 

And what can it do for you?

Here's how to do it.
  • Click on the Start button, type ‘Snipping Tool’ in the search bar, and select the app from the results.

The ability to convert pictures to text can save you a significant amount of time, especially if you frequently work with images containing text. 

It’s also a great tool for digitizing handwritten notes or documents. 

However, the accuracy of the text conversion can vary depending on the quality of the image and the legibility of the text.

For instance, if you’ve taken a screenshot of a recipe from a cooking website, you can use the Snipping Tool to quickly convert the ingredients list into a text format that you can easily edit or share.
