Windows 10 has a great Snipping Tool built-in, but Lightshot makes things even easier to share a screenshot with some annotations.
You can even assign the app to use the default Prt Scn button on a keyboard, and have it automatically upload and copy the URL to the clipboard to make it easy to share screenshots on social networks, in emails, and over messaging apps. Similar to Evernote, Microsoft's One Note note-taking app can be almost anything you want it to be.
