    You can back up these 2 files :
    "C:\Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe" "C:\Windows\System32\en-US\SnippingTool.exe.mui" Replace en-US (US English) with your system language - en-GB for UK English, fr-FR for French etc. You can restore these to any folder and run it from there as long as SinippingTool.exe is in the root of the folder and SnippingTool.exe.mui is in a subfolder with the correct language name (eg en-US).

    It works for any app that has its .exe in System32 and it's .mui in a language sub-folder of System32. MS Paint is one example, though that no longer seems to be under threat. Another example is 'Backup & Restore (Windows 7)' for which you want sdclt.exe and sdclt.exe.mui.
    And remember, don't put it back into System32 if/when MS remove it from Windows else the next update may remove it. Put it in any other folder you want, along with the appropriate language sub-folder. They don't need to be in System32 to run correctly. I keep mine in an 'Old Windows Apps' folder.
    Hi,
    Sweet thanks for that
    I'm going to try to use a win-7 snipping tool since it actually activates as soon as it's ran unlike win-10's version that waits for you to use new snip which bites.
