Windows 11 operating system has introduced many changes in a number of old apps that Microsoft has been running for a long time. Now, to make sure they do not look old-fashioned within the glitzy Windows 11 eco-system, Microsoft has announced many changes and the most recent example of that is the humble, but indispensible, Snipping Tool. While it will retain its cutting edge skills, its look and feel has been changed. Microsoft has teased a new version of the popular Snipping Tool for Windows 11 with the head of Microsoft's Windows & Devices division, Panos Panay, sharing a video on Twitter. He tweeted, "Here is a first look at the new #Windows11 Snipping Tool. Coming to #WindowsInsiders soon! Great work from the team #pumped."

In the 17-second video, a refreshed UI can be seen, which indicates that the two existing tools, Snipping Tool and Snip & Sketch, have been merged. Snip & Sketch had come out in Windows 10, and was thought to be a replacement for the old Snipping Tool. Presumably, the old ones will be gone, leaving the new one to be rolled out with Windows 11.

Here is a link to the tweet showing the new Windows 11 feature:

And what does the new tool offer? Well, more or less, the same options. No, there do not seem to be any new features present in the new tool. What Windows 11 has done is retain the best of both the tools. The new Snipping Tool UI resembles the old Snip & Sketch, with some buttons being re-arranged.

Panos Panay says Windows Insiders will be able to try the new Snipping Tool soon.

Microsoft Windows 11 is slated to be rolled out to the general public in the fall, but no specific month or date has been announced by the company as yet. However, it is being speculated, figuring from some deadlines given to PC makers, that this may well happen in October and that too in the later half, perhaps third week.

Windows 11 is an update for Windows 10 operating system and, at the moment, it is being tested through the Windows Insider programme.
