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

21 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, SP1
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.

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 .
