Windows snipping tool has a little "copy" button, it looks like this:

If you're composing and email in gmail, you can paste right into your email with Ctrl-V after copying from the snipping tool with that button. It's very convenient.

At StackExchange sites, I have to save the snip to my hard drive first (as far as I know). The drag-and-drop functionality you have now is great for images on my hard drive. But allowing copy paste would save me from having to save the snip, and then delete it.

  • So it does! Thank you. It wasn't working for me before but it worked this time. I see the UI is a bit tricky, though. If you restore focus by clicking on the uploader, it opens the local disk explorer which you then have to close before pressing Ctrl-V. Or you can just use Alt-TAB in windows to switch focus back and then it works. I must not have clicked properly before. – Buttle Butkus Feb 1 '16 at 9:45
