Enthusiastically announced on the Windows blog, the 11.2308.33.0 update for Windows 11 that turned the Capture Tool into a powerful ally for those who like to “capture” and “copy.” With a click on the scan button, the text in the image is identified. And, if a simple click is not enough for you, you can always rely on the good old Ctrl + A and Ctrl + C to select and copy as you like. But it doesn’t end there!

Microsoft has also thought about your privacy. With the new Text Actions, you can obscure sensitive information, making it easy and safe to share screenshots. Whether it’s phone numbers or email addresses, you can rest assured that your data will remain safe. With dedicated text functions, you have the option to redact sensitive information directly on screenshots before sending and sharing them. Use the “Quick Mask” option in the toolbar to automatically blur email addresses and phone contacts. Otherwise, just highlight the text you want to hide and choose “Obfuscate Text” from the context menu to make the content invisible.
