Hi All,

I am running Windows 7 and need to use the program Snipping Tool but can't find it in my Accessories program list.

Do I need to download the program off the web?

In your Start menu type Snipping Tool in the search box.

RIGHT click on Snipping Tool when the results are shown.

Choose Send to/Desktop.

If you don't want a desktop shortcut you can add it back to accessories.

Drag the icon to the Start icon and drop it in.

Next open up your Start menu, look in Programs for the icon. Drag and drop it into the Accessories folder. You will probably have to drag it BELOW the Accessories folder icon in order for it be moved.

Or you could pin it to your taskbar which is where I have the Snipping Tool since I use it a lot.
