Windows 7: Snipping Tool

01 Apr 2009   #21

Windows 7 b7000

Maybe I'm doing something wrong here, but I cannot get the Snipping Tool to open.

I'm using Wiin7 b7000, and I found the exe file in

but it won't open when I click it.

W7 Pro x64 and W8.1 Pro DevPreview

Quick update for how I configured snipping shortcut on my W7 x64 workstation:
* when using Office Pro Plus w/OneNote open, click Windows+S to get the snipping screen.
* The first time after selecting the screen area it will ask where to put the snip -I checked "don't ask me again" and then "copy to clipboard"
