How To Uninstall Screen Sketch In Windows 10

Screen Sketch is replacing the classic Snipping Tool. New Screen Sketch not only helps you to take screenshots, but also annotate and share them.

While Screen Sketch is a little better than the Snipping Tool as far as features are concerned, it lacks some essential features that you find in free third-party screen snipping utilities. Tools like Greenshot and PicPick are definitely better than the Sketch Screen app in Windows 10.

If you are using a third-party screen capture tool on a Windows 10 PC, you may want to uninstall the default Sketch Screen application.

In this tutorial, we will see how to uninstall the Sketch Screen application in Windows 10.

NOTE: If you want to start using the Sketch Screen app again in the future, you can get it from the Windows Store.
