I have windows 7 ultimate build 7600,but i can't seem to find the snipping tool anywhere

It used to be there,but i can't find it anymore,I tried the start menu search,but no use

it's not even in the accessories menu

I also tried to reinstall the "tablet PC" part in "windows features" but that also didn't work

what has gone wrong?


Recreate a shortcut to it in the Start Menu. The target is %windir%\system32\SnippingTool.exe.

Maybe it was inadvertently removed?

  • I found it inside that directory,made a shortcut to it on the desktop,thanks a lot :) – Mahmoud Hossam Nov 5 '09 at 12:09
