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.
