Snipping tool gone missing in Windows 7

    Question

  • I had the snipping tool and was using it frequently.  All of a sudden it was gone from accessories.  I made sure that tablet pc was enabled.  I cannot find it anywhere.  When I go to all programs and click on accessories and Tablet PC, under it, it says (empty)...don't know if it is supposed to have anything under it or not.  I have done full virus scans, etc. to try to clear up this problem and search for answers but so far nothing.  Any other ideas?  Is there a way to just download it from somewhere on microsoft site?  I don't want to have to do a complete install and have to reset all up again.  Thanks for any help.

  • in Windows 7 the Snipping tool no longer depends on Tablet PC like in Vista. It is organized into an own package.

  • Do you see this exe?
    "C:\Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe"

    Create a new shortcut to the SnippingTool here:

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

  • If you can't find it using Andre's directions, go to Control Panel > Turn windows features on or off and check  the option for Tablet PC Components.
