Is there a snipping tool similar to the one in Windows which lets you view it even though you haven't saved anything?



ksnip is pretty much exactly like the Windows snipping tool. The UI looks very alike and you would use it in the same way.

You can install via snap with:

sudo snap install ksnip

The source code and other installation options can be found on their GitHub page.

Here are some screenshots of ksnip: ksnip before capture

  • very good but I preferred install it from .deb file fo avoid snaps that I've disinstalled from my system. Downloaded .deb file from here : github.com/ksnip/ksnip/releases – pat Oct 24 '20 at 13:40
  • @pat Thank you for the comment, I have added the GitHub page to my answer. – totalynotanoob Oct 24 '20 at 13:44

Don't know exactly what you mean, because I don't use any windows snipping tool. I use "Screenshot 3.36.0" (install package gnome-screenshot). Which I have bound to the "print-screen"-button. Which this you can copy the screen (or window) to the clipboard or save to file.
