Windows 10 Snipping Tool
The below were taken from my Windows 10 build 1803 machine. Note that there are now additional buttons present.

Mode allows you to customise what will be captured.
Delay allows you to delay the capture so you have time to get the exact details ready.

Why should you care about the new options? Have to every had the requirement to capture a pop-up menu, but when you press the key to initiate the screen capture the key press dismisses the very thing you want to capture?
This is the perfect example of when to use the delay feature. Set the delay, click new snip and then you will be capture the exact detail you want.
