Snipping Tool is a screenshot tool that is made by Microsoft. It is a part of Windows Vista and later Windows operating systems. It can take a screenshot of an open window, rectangular areas, free-form areas, or all of the screen.[1] Snipping Tool also has simple editing tools, like different colored pens, an eraser, and a highlighter.

A delay option was added to Snipping Tool on June 2015. The delay option lets the program wait from 0 to 5 seconds before making a screenshot.[2] It was replaced on October 2018 by a similar program, Snip & Sketch.[3]
