  1. Snip and Sketch Failed to open file


    This error started to occur a few weeks ago. In fact about the same time as Your Phone went tits up.
    I have tried all listed cures, reset the app, uninstalled and reinstalled, all to no avail.
    Luckily Snipping Tool still works.

    Is this type of thing going to become as habit of all apps from the store?

    :)

  2. Snip & Sketch window fails to stay open

    OK, can you reboot and then re-try the Snip & Sketch.

    If the problem persists, do the following:

    Press Windows Key + I key to open Settings, and click on Apps.

    You should already be on Apps & features. Find Sketch & Snip app from the available list of apps.

    Click on Snip & Sketch > Uninstall.

    Then click on Start and type store and click on Microsoft Store in the results.

    In the Microsoft store, type Snip into the search box and hit Enter and Snip & Sketch will be in the results. Click on it and then click on Get. Let it install and then try using it again.

    Let me know if this works.

    I took a screenshot of the entire screen, and then hit Snip & Sketch's notification. It shows "Failed to open the file".

    Snip & Sketch

    It's the Snipping Tool that's being phased out, not Snip & Sketch. FWIW, I just used the latter tool and was able to paste the snip into a Word (Office 365) document. There was a point in the past when for reasons unknown, opening Word would clear the
    clipboard. If you're using an older version, you might want to try opening the document first, before taking a screenshot.

    If you prefer to use Snipping Tool, all you have to do (as I suggested earlier) is open the Start Menu and type snip.
