    I cannot get snipping tools to activate on my pc. Are their services that must be started to make them work?

    Snipping tool should be here: C:\Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe.

    If not, download this zip file.at the bottom of page. De-extract the zip and drag Snipping Tool.exe into system32 and then Right Click on it and chose Create Shortcut (if you already have a SnippingTool.exe in system32, you do not need to use my one). On the dialogue press Yes, drag it into Accessories in the Start Menu

    Also try going to Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off > and select Tablet PC Components.

    You could also type "snipping tool" into the search bar after clicking Start.

    Thanks to Huggie54! Solved by locating file as he suggested in system32 and making a shortcut on desktop.
    Sorry for not sending earlier, but I was not familiar with your protocols
