Windows 7 – OSX Like Screenshot Command

Strangely, one of the most useful things about OSX was the screenshot capability.

CMD+SHIFT+3 takes the whole screen to the desktop.
CMD+SHIFT+4 takes a selection to the desktop

CTRL+CMD+SHIFT+4 takes a selection to the clipboard.

Well, in windows 7 you can pretty much get most of that functionality by right clicking on the “Snipping Tool”, and assigning a hotkey to it. I made it CTRL+SHIFT+4.

Simple. Done!

It also saves to the clipboard for easy photoshop pasting available via the options dropdown in snipping tool.
