    I use Word
    I press CTRL H to replace text everywhere
    I input my text and search
    And then press Alt + A - this is meant to select 'Replace All'

    I've been doing it for years
    Always used to work

    Now...
    All works 70% of the time
    30% of the time... Sniper tool turns up thinking I want to take a screenshot :(
    It winds me up.

    How do I turn off and on?
    AND... why and how does it turn on by itself?
    I mean I don't turn on intentionally

    Thanks.

    Which version of Word are you using? Usually when I do Ctrl + H, it pulls up the Find & Replace dialogue box, you enter what you want to find, what to replace it with, and then simply hit the Replace All button.

    Regarding the Snipping Tool: this page shows two ways in which to disable it.
