    If that doesn't work you can assign a key shortcut to it easily: Assign a Shortcut Key to the Snipping Tool in Windows

    Sure it works in Windows 10. Just tried it. However, you need to hit twice with whatever you assign a key for.
    In addtition, instead messing around with registry, just download: Context Menu Tuner
    and you can add anything to context menu.
    Hilite "Add Custom Item" on the left, hilite an item on the right to select where the context menu applied to then click "Add->Add to selected Item" then select snipping tool

    I just wrote this.. SnippingTool.reg
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\SnippingTool]
    @="&Snipping Tool"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\SnippingTool\command]
    @="C:\\Windows\\System32\\SnippingTool.exe"
    1. Save code into file: SnippingTool.reg
    2. Run and it will add the Snipping Tool to the desktop right click.

    HTH
