I click on snipping tool. It opens, but not full screen. It doesn't have a arrorw down or anything at all. I believe its corrupted or something.

I think that is normal. See this link: How to use the Snipping Tool in Vista - Vista Forums

Snipping tool is the same in Vista and 7.

You can select a Full Windows snip from the drop-down menu.

That's the problem. I don't have those choices. I don't see those at all. Its a tiny window with minimize, maximize and X. The little scissor doesn't have a arrow at all. Its like disable or corrupted or something. I can't use it at all

How long has it been like this? Might a system restore help?

I haven't notice until today. Does it need system restore help?

Try a repair install, or in command prompt sfc /scannow

The software you suggested is a Trial version. Can't the snipping tool be fixed or should I keep checking to see if it will work?

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...
