Snipping Tool screen utility has disapeared

The Snipping Tool utility has vanished. I pinned it to the Start Menu. For some unknown reason it has disappeared and it is enabled (Tablet Features is turned)

What could have caused a utility included in Windows to vanish? What should I do to get it back?

The Snipping Tool utility is back. I went to a notebook where it was working and found snippingtool.exe stored in C:/Windows/Sytem32. I then went to the notebook where it was missing and found the file was there. I then made a shortcut and put the shortcut on the Desktop from there I moved the shortcut to Accessories on the Start Menu. I wonder how the short cut was deleted.

To check the rest of Windows 7 system files I would run sfc /scannow.

Here is a tutorial by Brink that will guide you.

Snipping Tool Screen Captures
This morning on my home PC, I used the snipping tool to make two screen captures. They both had a yellow tint to them. I just did one at my work PC and it did not have a yellow tint. Both are Windows 7, work is Pro and home is HP. Any ideas as to why?

Snipping Tool
Does anyone know if there is a shortcut to open the snipping tool? Like the shortcut - Windows+S on OneNote 2007 for a screen capture if you've ever used it.

Snipping Tool 4 use in full screen games?
Er.. I came to Windows 7 from XP after having spent very little time with Vista. This Snipping tool thing seems o.k. if you need to take a screen shot of something on your desktop.. but will it work when you have a game open to full screen?
