Windows 11’s screenshot tool is getting QR code scanning and emoji support

Microsoft is finally adding an easy way to use QR codes in Windows 11’s built-in Snipping Tool. A new update began rolling out to Windows Insider testers today. It will automatically detect QR codes in screenshots so you can open links from your PC. The Snipping Tool update also includes emoji support.

The automatic detection of the QR code will appear if you enter the text actions part of the canvas in the snipping tool and will highlight the QR code and its clickable link. If you’re an emoji fan, you’ll be able to add Microsoft’s 3D emoji to your screenshots. This new option is part of the Shapes toolbar, and any inserted emoji can easily be resized and moved on top of your screenshot.

Speaking of the shapes toolbar, Microsoft is adding the ability to change the shape fill opacity and outline colors. The ruler tool is also reintroduced and you can enable or disable it with the CTRL + R keyboard shortcut.

Along with this Snipping Tool update, Microsoft is also updating the name of the AI-based Pain Cocreator feature. It now becomes Image Creator, but it will work exactly as it does now to allow you to create images from a text prompt.
