How to locate the Snip & Sketch directory
Other guides are unfortunately not reliable because the directory names can be different per computer.
We can reliably locate the Snip & Sketch directory by using the Windows File Explorer's built-in search functionality.
Paste the following into the file explorer location field.
The search result will show the ScreenClip directory. The Snip & Sketch temporary files are in that directory. If we want to keep those screenshots we will need to copy them to a save location. Windows can delete them from that directory at any time.
We can make a shortcut for this search task.
- Right-click the open area next to the search result.
- The context menu will open.
- Click "Save search".
- Choose a location to save the search. A location where you will find it again; on your desktop for example.
- Choose a name you will recognise. Perhaps name it "Snip & Sketch temporary files".
- Click "Save" to finish.
