Snipping tool trick

I really love the Snipping Tool. It enables me to take screenshots without having
to install third-party software quite efficiently. I did encounter one very annoying
issue though when trying to capture context menus or the Start menu- while launching
the snipping tool these menus disappeared… 🙁

It seems that there is a solution for this issue. To capture a context menu, open the
Snipping Tool, open the menu you would like to capture and then press Ctrl+PrtScn.

The screen should fade and the familiar interface of the snipping tool should appear.

Note that once a screen is captured this will not work again, you will have to reopen the
snipping tool.
