    missing search field and snipping tool

    Yesterday I turned on my laptop and in my lower taskbar my snipping tool and the shortcut for Microsot Edge was missing. I clicked on the windows icon in the lower left corner and found edge but no snipping tool. I can't search for it because the search field is also missing. It is no longer listed in apps either. Can anyone tell me how to get it back?

    I searched the forum, found this answer and got it! C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

    Although I don't use StartMenu 99% of the time, and SnippingTool had been pinned to the taskbar before the upgrade to 1709 (it's still there), but StartMenu>>AllApps>>Windows Accessories -->> drop down menu led me to Snipping Tool, where I thought it would be.
