    When I am using multiple tabs on my laptop and using a particular tab, the other tab which is open on the screen turns a bit darker. NOw when I have to take a screen snip of any part of the screen the screen stays darker I can see the parts of the inactive tab but the screen snip will also come darker I am therefor unable to screen snip properly. see image below of the screen snip the screen snip tab was active so the chrome and explorer tabs turned to this shade the snip is same as the attached picture below. How to resolve this?

  2. Screen snip not displaying snips

    hi,

    I'm using Win10 Enterprise LTSC, I have been using Screen snip and it works well, but today when I take a snip the snip is not displayed, I've tried rebooting but this didn't make any difference, I checked Apps and Features and screen snip is not listed in it. The steps I took are: Click on Action Centre, select Screen snip, the screen snip icon appears on the top of the screen, screen goes grey and cursor turns into a crosshair, I select the area for the snip but nothing happens, the screen snip application should launch but it doesn't. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Unable to mail the snipped clip from Snipping tool option on Windows 10.

    Hello Jensheahan,

    • Press Windows logo key on the keyboard, type Windows Live Mail and select the top most search result.
    • From the dialog box select the application to set as default and follow the on-screen instructions.
