Windows 7: Add Print Option To Snipping Tool

Add Print Option To Snipping Tool

Hey everyone,

Just wondering, in Windows 7, there is no option on the snipping tool to allow it to print directly from the snipping tool. You have to snip what you want, then copy it to a paint document or something of the sort, then print from there. That seems like such a waste to me. In Windows 10 for sure you can snip what you want, go to file, and select Print, then you're good to go. Is there any way to add this feature to the Snipping Tool or is there any other programs that are very much like the snipping tool that I can use, that give you the print function right in the tool?

I don't think so shadow I just snip save as a pic to say Desktop go to there - and make changes to it always with Paint (there is as you probably know fancier programs to use if installed) - as I use it a lot for attaching to posts and then it is just a matter of attaching the pic to posts.

Personally I find the 7 snip easier to use than the 10 one the latter having more steps - I find - to get a pic for doing something with.

Anyway unless there is a registry entry that could be altered to suit looking at the options when snipping shows no such feature.

The free version has some limits but has a lot more options than the snipping tool.

MS Snipping Tool
Hi, Have been using that MS "Snipping Tool" that came with W7 on my PC quite often. Really a nice little add-on. However, I cannot get the "Eraser" function to ever work. I looked for an update of it to download, but can't find anyplace. Is there one ?
