When I run Snipping Tool from my start menu, no window appears. The process is running according to Task Manager. It is reproducible and not a stuck process because if I kill the current instance and restart it, the same problem occurs.
Since I sometimes have an external monitor attached to my laptop, I suspect that the tool's main window is being created outside the bounds of my active display. I'm aware of the usual method to deal with this: Focus the window, Alt+Space to call up its system menu, M for Move, press any arrow key to start moving, then move mouse. However I can't get this to work for Snipping Tool because it doesn't take focus at startup and doesn't appear in either the tray list of running applications or the Alt-Tab order.
Does anyone have any suggestions how to get my Snipping Tool back?
Failing that, are there some keyboard shortcuts so I could use it without actually being able to see it?
