How to Re-Enable the Snipping Tool

After making a few tweaks here and there to your computer, you may find that the Windows Snipping Tool had disappeared. I use it quite often for this weblog so when it disappeared, I had quite a headache. I’m sure many also want to know how to bring this tool back.

First, open your Start Menu and type in programs and features.
Then choose “Turn Windows Features on or Off” from the side Menu.

You probably least expected this, but snipping tool falls under the Tablet PC Optional Components category.

Check it again, press OK, and your Snipping Tool will come back. Still need help? Check out our new forums where you can get an even faster and better response!
