In Win7, I could select the area to be snipped as soon as I had launched Snipping-tool; but in Win10, I have to first click on 'NEW' - which I find an inconvenience and would like to avoid. I have tried to run the snippingtool.exe from Win7 in Win10 without success; even when used in COMPATIBILITY mode. Is there a way to avoid the 'unnecessary' extra step ?

Use one of the other tools for this. I use Greenshot.

I have tried various other alternatives to M$Snippingtool - none are as simple; more importantly, none solve the problem I'm posting about.
