    You mean you cannot find it under alphabet W > Windows Accessories ?

    Snipping Tool is supposed to be there.

    To srhagedorn,
    Snipping tool is one of the Windows accessories. It can NOT be deleted or uninstalled.

    While you are still looking for Snipping Tool ..............
    If you need a Free screen capture program urgently , try Picpick.
    I have been using it for 3 years now. It is a whole lot more sophisticated than Snipping Tool. Many features you will appreciate.
    It is known as the "poor man SnagIt ".

    To srhagedorn,
    If you prefer to restore Snipping Tool instead of using a 3rd party program, my suggestion will be doing a Repair Install.

    Thank you . Eventually found it under the Windows App. Just seems it should have been easier to find. Thanks for your help.

    You are welcome.

    Yes. not simple to find when MS groups some of them under certain categories.

    When you see a folder icon in the All apps list, that indicates something is inside.
    Open them. Particularly those under alphabet W.
    You'd be surprised what you may find inside the folder.
