Improvements and various corrections

With Microsoft set to exchange the Snipping Tool with Screen Sketch, the app must be refined to get replaced completely. When Microsoft launched it initially, the app didn’t produce great screenshots and therefore the images were blurry. An update has corrected that issue and this update addresses another outstanding feature that prevented it from being a full-featured replacement.

The latest update is out there only for Windows Insiders immediately and can be made public afterward. For now, if you’re a Windows Insider then you’ll download and install the app from the Microsoft Store here
