Microsoft has released a new version of the Snipping Tool, specifically for Windows Insiders. The latest version, 11.2308.33.0, comes with a crucial feature called Text Actions. This feature allows users to detect text within an image and enables them to seamlessly copy and paste the text into other applications.
Not only does Text Actions allow for easy copying of text for use elsewhere, but it also streamlines the process of redacting sensitive information from documents. Users simply select the text in the image and press Ctrl+R.
Another noteworthy feature is Phone Link, which alerts users when they capture an image on their phone. This enables them to open and edit the image on their PC immediately.

The tool also includes Phone Link, which facilitates quick editing of phone-captured images on PCs.
