    Change Snip & Sketch HotKey


    HI, I like the OneNote's snipping utility and have been using it for years. Now, the new Snip & Sketch tool takes over the "Windows + Shift + S" hotkey from OneNote. I want it to be re-assigned to OneNote and probably assign another HotKey to Snip & Sketch. I have tried below so far with no luck:- Changing Shortcut of Snipping Tool under "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories" but it seems to be the old snipping tool and not the new Snip & Sketch. - I cant find Snip and Sketch or even Snipping tool under System Properties > Apps & Features >

    :)

    Snip & sketch

    Hello FrankEngstrom,

    Thank you for updating me that information. If you mean the snip and sketch? Based on your description the snipping tool is crashing?

    Please try to reset Snip and Sketch

    Press Start then search Apps and Features

    Select Snip and Sketch on the list

    Click Terminate then Reset

    If it doesn't work, Please try to create a new administrator account then check if everything is working.

  3. Snip and Sketch Awkward

    Use Windows+shift+s to launch Snip and Sketch. Can snip a screenshot.

    Now the problem is this: after snipping the screen shot, it does not automatically appear in the Snip and Sketch app. So I open Snip and Sketch and there's nothing on it.

    So I have choose 'new' and snip the screen yet again.

    I recall using this once and taking a screenshot and voila! Snip and Sketch appeared with the screen shot duly in the app's workspace, ready for annotations and saving etc. This facility has disappeared. I have re-set it according to instructions, and even
    reinstalled it - yet the problem persists.

    Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks
