  • Well I got to thinking that I had not used snip in 4 days, the only changes I remembered making was downloading a tweak 7 program, I un-installed and no change. So i did a system restore to the day prior to the tweak install and there it is.......snipping tool is back, i think it had to be the tweak or a setting in the program but all is good now.

    Thanks everyone for the tips and advice, I do appreciate it.

  • It's still there.

    Make sure that Tablet PC components are enabled though control panel/programs and features/turn Windows features on or off

  • Bobo,

    So if you click on the start button and type snip it doesn't show up? The file should be here:
    %windir%\system32\SnippingTool.exe

  • I had the same issue. The link on my desktop to the snipping tool periodically quit working, though the actual tool still lived and worked in the system32 folder.

    In my case, it was my Uniblue Registry Booster application that was trashing the link. Telling Registry Booster to ignore the link when scanning fixed it.

    You realise that the last reply to this thread is getting on for 2 years old?

    Personally, I won't let any of the registry cleaners/boosters near my machines.
