Windows 7: how to disable Snipping Toll in Win 7 ?

how to disable Snipping Toll in Win 7 ?

In Vista, I could turn off snipping tool via Turn Windows Features On and Off > uncheck Tablet PC Components.

In Win 7, I read that snipping too is part of the operating system in Home Premium, Ultimate, Pro and Enterprise. Unchecking Tablet PC Components will not disable snipping tool.

So, how do I disable it, or is it possible at all ?

Thank you.

Why do you need to disable it?

Exactly, no overhead to speak of when not in use.

Since nobody has answered the question - you might try just renaming it - that should stop it popping up .

MS Snipping Tool

Does anyone know if there is a shortcut to open the snipping tool? Like the shortcut - Windows+S on OneNote 2007 for a screen capture if you've ever used it.

My snipping tool is acting up. :cry: I click the icon (on task bar) and it starts to glow a reddish colour and flashes slowly. Maybe about 1/2 a minute later, the snipping tool window opens and then again, sometimes it doesn't open at all. I was trying to snip an email pic in Outlook. I had to...
