    Greys out when trying snipping tool...


    [Win10 Version 20H2 (OS Bild)19042.928; Lenovo Laptop; Outlook/Word 2016; Google Chrome...(is there more?)]. Hello, I'm trying to take a screenshot of the language preferences in my taskbar, but when I open it and bring out the snipping tool, it greys out. Is there a work around to do this? I have 2 unneeded languages interfering in my work. First I tried googling for hours and didn't find any results so I came here where I can describe more accurately my problem. Otherwise, this snipping tool takes proper screenshots wherever the subject happens to be in. It wont take it when I have to open the subject. Anticipating big thanks for any help. Greys out when trying snipping tool... :) P.S. So sorry I just saw I didn't say why I wanted the screenshot - because some in the internet asked to see the problem before they can tell me how to delete these 2 languages.

    :)

    Windows 10 - Snipping Tool

    That didn't work.

    If I snip the grey screen over the area I am trying to snip, the snip is still grey when pasted.

    I tried ESC to keep the tool running and selecting a new rectangle but the screen again turned grey.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thank you

    Your post is unclear. Please post a step-by-step description of what you are doing, e.g. like so:

    • Open the snipping tool
    • Click "New"
    • etc.

    Hi Andre,

    Prior to your response I did: sfc /scannow (as admin). without any changes=same solid grey screen when clicking on "new" on the snipping tool. After restarting the the computer, the snipping tool functions correctly. I will wait for the problem
    to reoccur, then try your suggestion for the Repair Upgrade.

    Thanks you for the support.

    Jeff
