    Snip and Sketch shortcuts.


    Is it possible to create a taskbar shortcut to open 'Snip and Sketch' directly and without it opening the whole App?

    These images should clarify what I mean. Snip and Sketch can be added to the taskbar but it always opens as shown. By pure chance I found a button in the action centre that also opens Snip and Sketch. This one opens just the working App ready to go and use without the other screen info present.

    Shortcut:

    explorer.exe ms-screenclip:

    EDIT:

    More appropriate icon: %SystemRoot%\System32\shell32.dll,259

    Edwin,
    How does one make a shortcut like that? The shortcut properties dialog tells me that it's invalid. I tried quoting the values and that didn't work either. I also tried
    Code:
    rundll32.exe shell32.dll,259
    which gives an error when run "Missing entry: 259"

    Create the shortcut using this identifier: explorer.exe ms-screenclip:



    Fetch icon from here: %SystemRoot%\System32\shell32.dll

    Ah my mistake, I misread the original post. Thank you. I found out that you can get the same behavior using
    Code:
    Shift+WinKey+S
    so the shortcut is moot in my case. But thanks anyway!
