Windows 10: Snip or Snip & Share? Solved

    Snip or Snip & Share?


    When I first got my Win10 insider I used the Snip tool - it's icon is a pink pair of scissors. Then I discovered the Snip & Share tool, which has a black icon and puts a tool bar in the centre top of the screen. This was great. I did everything I needed. Then on a recent fast track update, none of the snip tools would work. I have multiple monitors and they sent the screens crazy. I tried a couple of third party tools with the same result. I tried various video drivers ranging from the very latest to several versions old. No go. In addition, my Daum Potplayer now can't run full screen as this causes the other screen to flash.

    Firstly, it is extremely confusing the way MS have named these tools. Secondly it is very frustrating that something in the last two insider builds has messed up my graphics is such a peculiar and limited way. Everything else runs just fine.

    Any insights please?

    Today's update, (Mar 25, 2016), to Build 14295, should have most of those issues fixed.
