In Win7, I could select the area to be snipped as soon as I had launched Snipping-tool; but in Win10, I have to first click on 'NEW' - which I find an inconvenience and would like to avoid. I have tried to run the snippingtool.exe from Win7 in Win10 without success; even when used in COMPATIBILITY mode. Is there a way to avoid the 'unnecessary' extra step ?

Nope, you need to save it!

SAVING is not the issue - the issue is having to click on NEW in Win10's snippingtool, when that was NOT necessary in Win7's

Two workarounds have occurred to me, both of which I need help with.
1. Keep snippingtool launched on the desktop, ready for NEW to be clicked when needed.
2. Add the appropriate line emulating 'click on NEW' to the batchfile to open snippingtool, already containing the line <Start "" "C:\windows\system32\SnippingTool.exe">
