  1. Snipping Tool not giving SAVE AS option


    Snipping tool was great in Windows 10 which I had sitting on my toolbar for easy access. Why is there no equivalent in Windows 11? I don't want a SCREENSHOT. The Snipping Tool shortcut key of Windows+Shift+S disappears before I can get the SAVE option and ONLY SOMETIMES works by clicking quickly on the snip. VERY FRUSTRATING!

    Snip Tool won't save directly

    My snip tool won't save snips at all unless I manually go into the snip tool and save it from there. I'm running Windows 11.

    I have all of these enabled:

    • Snipping tool notifications
    • Use the Print screen button to open screen snipping
    • Save Snips
    I've created a new user profile, turned off and on all those various settings, updated my computer fully, and rebooted.

    I talked with someone in tech support at length but he was stumped too since I have the "Save Snips" option enabled. Snipping Tool not giving SAVE AS option :(

  4. Snipping Tool not giving SAVE AS option

    snipping tool

    The snipping tool on my windows 11 machine doesnt give me the option to save the snip, unless im missing something.

    I press PrtScn button, the snipping tool widget appears, I select the area I want, then the snipping tool closes without giving me any options to save what I have captured like Win10.

    EDIT - If I press Win+PrtScn I get a full screen capture and the file is saved in This PC\Pictures\Screenshots, but a "rectangular Snip" doesnt save in the folder and it doesnt give me an option to save it anywhere.
