Google Chrome makes it easier to capture and edit screenshots.

In this hustle life, everyone wants shortcuts and an easy way to do tasks. Screenshots are the best way to share information quickly with anybody.

Sometimes we have to edit the screenshot to make things easy. Chrome introduced features of taking screenshots and editing that include drawing, copying adding text to the screenshot. We can directly take screenshot editing and share them quickly without any effort and save time.

This feature is now available on Android phones. According to Google, these features will also be practical in Mac OS (MOS), Windows Linux, and Chrome OS.

In desktop Chrome 96 canary, chrome latest version contains these two flags. One of the flags is related to capturing screenshots, and the second flag is related to editing.

These features are also developing in desktop Chrome which is now part of the browser testing version.

This feature is easy to use. We have to go to “Desktop screenshot edit mode” select enabled in the dropdown. Then click on the power to restart the browser. Click on share Icon in the dressing bar and select screenshot. We can also save these screenshots.

For Mac, 

  • Press Ctrl-Shift-I (or Cmd-Option-I on a Mac).
  • Press Ctrl-Shift-P (or Cmd-Shift-P on a Mac).
  • Type the word screenshot.

And that’s pretty much easier. You’ll see a series of screenshot options appear in a panel on the right side of the screen.

On the other hand, Google announced to cancel its support for the older version of chrome 48 at the end of November, and gradually same rules are applied to the other older versions of chrome. It is a good decision because all the versions of chrome are not widely used nowadays. People are using a new version which is better in features and easy to operate.

 This feature of Chrome is helpful but, they haven’t done the testing required for proper safety. That’s why to proceed with caution. If you have any security issues, you can use different browsers or flags in case of personal activities like online banking.

It has some negative and positive effects that depend upon the user how he used it. It is a double-ended sword in the case of online banking. Not always but, sometimes when the user’s system gets hacked and steal your personal information.

 Chrome this feature made it easy for its users to share or save or edit screenshots they are taking from chrome. It helped thousands of users to share their information with the world easily. 

Capturing screenshots and editing features of chrome is a beneficial feature. There is one flaw that there is a risk of losing data or personal information.

Chrome owners should take measures to overcome this flaw and make this feature useful and perfect. Chrome should make better privacy policies to avoid hackers.
