    Hello Yousaf,

    Yep, Windows 8 has the same Snipping Tool included in it as well.

    If you like, Windows 8 has a new screenshot capturing feature shown in the tutorial below that you might see how you like.

    There's always the reliable IrfanView. It's much more than a screenshot tool but it does that fine : IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide.
    When in the program, click Options > Capture/Screenshot to see all the options and how to start.
