My snipping tool quit working. It did this several weeks ago, but then it started working again. When I open it after several seconds a dialog opens saying that the snipping tool is not working... If the problem persists contact your administrator. But I am the administrator and I don't have the answer.

Try uninstalling and re-installing the tool. In the Control Panel - Programs & Features, click "Turn Windows Features on and off. " A menu box will open. Remove the check next to Tablet PC Components. Restart the computer, and reverse the process by adding the check back.

Do you have Windows Office installed on this computer?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I am re-awakening this post for two reasons.

One, there was no resolution and I was remiss in letting this drag out so long without the resolution. What will others coming along learn from an unfinished post?

Two, I need the snipping tool to work. I don't need it often, but when I do, I really do.

 

I tried the steps that K6567 suggested. No good.

 

Arachibutyrophbia asked if I had Microsoft Office installed. The answer is yes. I have Office 2007 Professional installed.

 

What's next?

Thanks Louis. I checked out the link. I did not find the Snipping Tool in my processes. No wonder it doesn't work. Any idea how I can start the process if it is not listed?

I find mine under Accessories, in proper working order.

 

The possibility always exist that the reason for dysfunction...lies with file corruption, IMO.
