  1. Snipping tool shortcut (shift+win+s)


    Hello everyone.


    As mentioned I have a problem with the snipping tool shortcut. To be more precise: It generally seems to work and I get the overlay (white screen and I can cut. However after letting the mouse button go it just disappears and nothing happens. So basically the shortcut itself works, but not the tool itself. So everytime I cut the window of the thing I want a screenshot of, I'm instandly back to normal (the overlay disappears), without a screenshot. The actual snipping tool application works completely fine, but it's a pain to use this one and open it up for every shot I do, over and over. It seems they're different tools, even though they basically look the same. Why the shortcut version doesn't work is a mystery to me though...


    If someone has an idea how to fix that or had a similar problem and had it fixed I'd be very greatful, because it would save me a lot of time and trouble to just use the shortcut.

    :)

    Disable Snipping tool shortcut

    Hello,

    I am currently trying to assign a few shortcuts to a program, but I cannot assign for example Win+Shift+S for example because it is already assigned to the snipping tool.

    I enabled the prevent snipping tool option in the group policy but now I still cannot assign the shortcut to another program, because I just get an error which says it cannot start snipping tool because of a group policy (duh).

    Why is there no obvious way to simply REMOVE the shortcut assignment instead of preventing the program from running in the first place.

    Snipping Tool Win+Shift+S not taking capture and saving.

    Hi Daniel, I'm Graeme, an independent adviser here to help.

    If your Snipping Tool isn't working correctly, you could try resetting it. Here are the steps to do so:

    - Click Start and type "apps & features".

    - Select Apps & Features.

    - Find the Snipping Tool (or Snip & Sketch) in the list and select it.

    - Click Advanced Options

    - Click Reset.

    After you've done this, try rebooting and using the Snipping Tool again.

    Please let me know if you need further support! Thanks!
