Snipping Tool in Windows 10
Dear Computer Lady,
One of the main reasons that I have not upgraded to W10 is that I’ve been told it no longer has the snipping tool!
I use that tool nearly daily & have no intentions of giving it up without a fight!!
If it is included in W10, how do you find/access it?
Thanks for your help & this great newsletter, G
Good news!! The snipping tool is included with Windows 10.
Here is how you would access it:
1. Click on the start menu icon or tap the start menu key on your keyboard.
2. When the start menu opens, don’t click on it, just start typing “Snipping Tool” and it will appear at the top of your start menu.
3. Click on the snipping tool icon, or if it is at the top of the menu, just press the “Enter” key on your keyboard.
4. If you want to keep the snipping tool on your taskbar for easy access, just right click on the Snipping tool icon on your taskbar, and click “Pin To Taskbar” in the context menu.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
