When replying to technical questions, I find that screenshots do the work so well for beginners. Then again, when I realize I should probably include screenshots to make my answer clearer, answering becomes more of a chore and sometimes I'll just skip altogether. I normally just do the regular print screen, paste in photoshop, crop and save to jpg then upload. I'm wondering though, is there a better tool for that specific type of situation for PC?
I've tried the Snipping tool a few times but found it not so straightforward. What do you use? Is there any way to have a similar shortcut as the one on Mac where you can select and it saves to desktop automatically?
