Snip & Sketch (previously known as Screen Sketch) is replacing the classic Snipping Tool. The new Snip & Sketch not only helps you take screen snips but also annotate and share them.
While Snip & Sketch is slightly better than the Snipping Tool as far as features are concerned, it lacks several essential features that you find in third-party free screen snipping utilities. Tools like Greenshot and PicPick are certainly better than the Snip & Sketch app in Windows 10.
If you are using a third-party screen capturing tool on your Windows 10 PC, you might want to uninstall the default Snip & Sketch app.
In this guide, we will see how to uninstall the Snip & Sketch app in Windows 10.
NOTE: If you want to start using the Snip & Sketch app again in the future, you can get it from the Windows Store.
