Windows 7: Snipping Tool Margin

But who cares about the white border before it's saved. What counts is how it looks after it was saved.

I'll take a guess until confirmed,
Go to Tools and Options and compare these settings ?

Obviously the OP cares, and they are aware of how it looks after saving. The snips are temporary as mentioned below.

I use Snipping Tool to temporarily capture some settings ... allows me to do a comparison (saving and opening the saved file are two more steps). The wide margin consumes screen real estate ... unnecessarily.
I don't think there is a solution to your problem with snipping tool, you may want to try a different screen capture program.
