My snipping tool is not working right. It will not allow me to save anything. Actually, I just checked and I can't even find it at all. How can I get it back and in working order? Thanks. Pat

Open the START ORB and enter SNIPPING, does it show?

If not, did you disable anything? It is part of the TABLET PC COMPONENT. See if that is off, CONTROL PANEL, PROGRAMS AND FEATURES, and then TURN WINDOWS FEATURES ON AND OFF, is that checked?

Irv, in Windows 7 it is not linked to tablet PC - only in Vista.

In Windows 7 it is located at %windir%\system32\SnippingTool.exe. My %windir% is C:\windows. Perhaps a search if yours is not there.

I tried the "Jing" thing and it works good. I like it. Thanks. I am tired of messing with the Windows Snipping Tool.

Jing does the job but I wonder why the windows snipping tool does not work, I use it all the time.
However, if you have Trusteer Rapport installed in your browser (online banking protection) you may have a problem, which means you may have to disable ST when a financial page is open.

Trusteer Rapport disables ST when a hidden tab is detected.

Owen, the topic was solved in this case for the snip problem, my reply above was try to solve the Windows snip problem which should not exist.
That is the exciting bit!
