Windows 10: Request for a reg file to add snipping tool new snip to context menu Solved

    Request for a reg file to add snipping tool new snip to context menu


    So ive been able to find a means to add the snipping tool itself to my context menu.

    Ive also been able to find a means to add a snipping tool entry with cascading menu to my start menu.

    I'm looking specifically for a means to add the snipping tool to context menu (with its icon ofc) and when clicking on it, it goes straight to the new snip option so im ready to capture straight away.

    is this possible?

    You can copy and paste the following code to NotePad, save it as a .reg file then run it.
    It will invoke an immediate 'Ready to Snip' task, from any Directory, to the Clipboard, ready to paste and save in in eg. Paint:


    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\SnippingTool]
    "MUIVerb"="Snip to Clipboard"
    "Icon"="SnippingTool.exe"
    "Position"="Bottom"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\SnippingTool\command]
    @="SnippingTool.exe /clip"
    Click image for larger version.

    If you would like the entry to be at the top of your context menu, change "Position" to "Top"...

    thank you very much! Exactly what i was hoping for :)

    before i add this, do you mind explaining what i need to do to make one to remove it so i can toggle it on/off should the need arise?

    (i like to save all these reg files for future use and other pc's etc)

    Create another .reg file for Removal:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\SnippingTool]
