    I love Microsoft Snip on my Surface Pro. So easy to grab a screen grab, picture, or white board... then annotate it if I want, and its already in the clipboard. I was just recommending it to someone on my team and they pointed out that the above link says Microsoft is killing it in May 2018.

    Can anyone recommend a good alternative? The thing about Snip is that its so quick and easy to use... no friction. Some of the tools are way more feature packed but more complicated to use.

    It will be removed from my computer as well?
    I use it at least every week, I don't want to lose that.

    How about the built in Snipping Tool?

    Lacks the annotation features and ease of use.

    It won't be removed from your computer; they'll just remove the download links. I'm probably going to put a copy of the installer on my OneDrive for when I need to install it in the future.

    Are you sure... the link said it would be removed and you'd lose all your saved snips.

    You're right. I missed that. I guess the app must have a built-in expiry date as it was a MS Garage project. That's a shame as it's quite a useful addition. At least I can get most of the functionality in the Screen Sketch part of Windows Ink on my machines as they're all on Windows 10.

    Meaning you won't be able to install it after its expiration date?
