Although the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (build 17134.1) still has to reach most users of Microsoft's operating system, the members of the Windows Insider Preview program can already take the build 17661 for a spin. Its highlights include an updated Snipping Tool and a new app for screenshots called Screen Sketch.

Yesterday, Microsoft released a new Windows 10 build for the members of the Insider Preview program. Although the Windows 10 April 2018 Update is a massive build that includes a long list of changes and new features, it looks like Windows 10 will get an entirely new tool soon, although one can easily live without it just as well. The name of the tool is Screen Sketch and the update carries the build number 17661.

Although it may seem like a new piece of code to many, Screen Sketch was originally introduced as part of the Windows Ink Workspace, but now it can finally be updated via the Microsoft Store. Even more, compared to its early versions, this app will also support multiple windows and tabs.

In addition to the new Screen Sketch app, those who work with a lot of screenshots also get to enjoy an updated Snipping Tool. In fact, both apps will now work together. This is Microsoft's description: "WIN + Shift + S will now bring up a snipping toolbar – snip a rectangle, something a bit more freeform, or full screen and it will go straight to your clipboard. If that’s all you need, you can take it from there. Want more, though? Immediately after taking a snip you’ll now get a notification that will take you and your snip to the Screen Sketch app where you can annotate and share away!" 

In addition to the above, Windows 10 build 17661 also comes with various minor, but noticeable changes, such as Windows Security (a new name for Windows Defender Security), Focus Assist that turns on automatically when running a full-screen game, Sound settings moved to the Windows Settings area, and much more.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
