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 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.
