Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay wrote on Twitter that members of the Windows Insider Program should be able to try out the new Snipping Tool soon, but he did not provide a specific time frame for the expected debut of the redesigned utility.

The new utility seems to combine some of the available features built into Windows 10 screenshot tool and Editing and sketching The application can be found in the Microsoft Store, which should make it easier for ordinary Windows 11 users to take better screenshots.
Speaking of screenshots: Microsoft also teased a new dark mode of Microsoft Word from its official Twitter account. The social media manager responsible for this tweet is even more concise than Panay in his trailer:

Responses to this tweet varied. Some people pointed out how to use various workarounds to enable dark mode in certain applications. Others asked Microsoft to enable dark mode in Task Manager, Device Manager, and other default Windows applications.
Of course, GitHub pointed out the dim pattern of its parent company by re-sharing the grand video it used to announce the change in its color scheme:
Call it dark mode reveal? Don’t like to star our own repo, but this is how you should be good at https://t.co/bx5SxZwlglAugust 4, 2021
Microsoft start testing Word’s new dark mode in February; now it seems to be about to see the light of day. Or, you know what we mean. I hope that the company will not wait until Windows 11 is released before it begins to sympathize with Word users.
