Snipping Tool / Clip Images in Store Apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Anyone know if there is a supported library for using a snipping tool to grab screen capture data outside of a store app?

    I'm playing with an idea to use a snipping crosshair to grab screen captures outside the app and then manipulate them inside of my app.

  • No. It is not possible for a Windows Store app to interact with the system like that. Windows Store apps cannot see or capture images from other apps.
