    Windows Snip & Sketch not working


    Hi all,

    A few days ago the Snip & Sketch functionality stopped working for some reason, clicking the icon in quick actions, next where it shows time and date in the taskbar does nothing. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but it hasn't worked, even in the Snip & Sketch app itself it doesn't let me capture a screenshot, does anyone know possible solutions?

    Thanks!

    Hello FrankEngstrom,

    Thank you for updating me that information. If you mean the snip and sketch? Based on your description the snipping tool is crashing?

    Please try to reset Snip and Sketch

    Press Start then search Apps and Features

    Select Snip and Sketch on the list

    Click Terminate then Reset

    If it doesn't work, Please try to create a new administrator account then check if everything is working.

    Sincerely

  4. Windows Snip & Sketch not working

    Snip and Sketch Awkward

    Use Windows+shift+s to launch Snip and Sketch. Can snip a screenshot.

    Now the problem is this: after snipping the screen shot, it does not automatically appear in the Snip and Sketch app. So I open Snip and Sketch and there's nothing on it.

    So I have choose 'new' and snip the screen yet again.

    I recall using this once and taking a screenshot and voila! Snip and Sketch appeared with the screen shot duly in the app's workspace, ready for annotations and saving etc. This facility has disappeared. I have re-set it according to instructions, and even
    reinstalled it - yet the problem persists.

    Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks
