Windows 7: Snipping Tool removed

Snipping Tool removed

Can anyone share how to re-install the snipping tool? I must have installed something that had a conflict with it and its gone now, nowhere to be found.

The same happened with my right click>new>text document notepad

I've tried searching the forums and a place to download and install but couldn't find anything.


Thank you for your time and help.

A system restore will bring everything back to the way it was.

or download here

Be sure to make a system restore point, first.

The Snipping Tool is a function of Tablet PC Components. Check to make sure that this isn't disabled.

Thanks Dwarf, I forgot it's a Feature, I knew it could be disabled, I just forgot where.

Both Zidane24 and Myself have checked and that is not true. We both have Tablet PC Components turned off and are both able to use the snipping tool.
