Pressing the diskette to save does nothing, nor does selecting save-as from the File menu. X-ing out of the SnippingTool program prompts user to save the file. If "yes" is selected, program terminates (without saving).

Possibly related to this: standard file folders on user accounts do not exist on this machine (e.g., pictures).


According to this running system file checker (run command prompt as administrator and type:

sfc /scannow

, hit Enter) could solve the problem.

  • Did you try adding a Pictures folder? The first reply of that thread gives an example how otherwise there is this method: sevenforums.com/tutorials/… – user142485 Sep 7 '12 at 13:16

Adding a folder named Pictures to the %USERPROFILE% folder fixes the issue.
