I keep facing a lot of problems on my systems. So I keep posting on stack exchange sites. I take a lot of screenshots from snipping tool for example this one https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Nk70pJTyo0i95UO8a5JOpbds4i2QFA9Q I posted on this link what could be cause of my slow running laptop on windows 10
also see these links in comments a lot of google drive screenshot links I gave

I many a times am in a situation where I have taken a screenshot and uploaded it in my google drive and I want to post it on stack exchange group of sites. But when I press image button in question typing box and try to fetch image from google drive I get an error file format not supported. So I am wondering in which file format should I save my screenshots taken by snip and sketch tool on Windows 10 so that when I share them from Google drive then they can be easily fetched.

  • Note that you can upload an image into a post straight from your computer, without first uploading it to Google Drive.

  • @V2Blast in the comments on those links I posted images that probably were used somewhere else also in questions.I was new to server fault and needed to lost links to image as with less than 10 reputation I can not post image in question. Dec 10, 2019 at 2:07

If you take screenshots with the snipping tool (as I do), just open the post editor and paste it (Ctrl+V) in the body of the post.

The reason that Google Drive link doesn't work is that it's not an image link rather a link to a Google Drive preview page containing the image/file.
