    Most of us have two entries in history for that KB. The first is a failure to install.
    Mine is up there three times. First, as a total blundering embarrassing failure, then two times shown as successful & one of those successful ones with a (4) behind it. Don't you find that weird and wonderful?

    As long as you're on the latest version then I wouldn't worry about it. Windows Update has a mind of its own ever since they implemented an artificial intelligence to it. Mine failed first to me aswell, seems to be a common theme. Doesn't matter what the history log says as long as it doesn't get picked up and installed every day and that it's actually there on the machine. Type winver in search as a cmd and it should say 17763.134.

    If you are a lucky Insider, latest version now has Windows Snip as well. AFAIK all the old snipping tools features are now in S&S.
    Although the gui is a bit yucky, it is now better than snipping tool overall now.
    As S&S is a Store app those updates may be seen by non-Insiders before the next Feature Update, it could be done by a Store update.

    For me the biggest advantage over the old snipping tool is the doubling of the delay, makes it much easier to set up screenshots of the deeper reaches of the Start menu.

    Then I shall wind down, avoiding a stroke and go into relax mode. The number up there is indeed 17763.134. All is proceeding as though normal. Thanks for your help.

    My beef is with the inexplicable policy that the latest S&S update is only seen by half rhe Insiders. No logic to that at all!

    This business of store apps taking the place of Windows Accessories irks me. As a pre-Interweb PC user, I dislike having to maintain this sort of umbilical cord to the Microsoft Store, which seems to enable them to install, update, downgrade, uninstall, and whatever other mischief they might think good on certain applications, without notification or permission. I know there is/are probably some setting/s that can mitigate some of this, but the cord is still there, I cannot reinstall Store apps from my own local standalone backup, and it really doesn't work as designed unless one is willing to log on to their system using a Microsoft Account. I don't do that. I won't do that. The whole reason to have a personal computer is that it is personal. Under personal control, not constantly asking Mother Microsoft for intervention via always-on connection to the internet. I only connect when I need to, and disconnect when done. Leave the bandwidth for others, and prevent falling prey to roaming bots, bugs, viruses, etc.

    That felt good. Sorry about the rant, I shall make some tea and be silent now.

    Well, in the case of the Snipping Tool and many other apps like MS Paint it is possible to preserve them for future use if/when they are removed.

    You can copy and paste them anywhere you want. There are two files you require: mspaint.exe and mspaint.exe.mui. The first can be found in C:\Windows\System32\ the .mui file is in a language-specific sub-folder of System32, for a US English install that would be C:\Windows\System32\en-US (for me it's C:\Windows\System32\en-GB).

    Copy mspaint.exe to a folder of your choice (I have made a 'C:\Program Files\Old Windows apps' folder). Create the en-us (or en-gb, etc.) subfolder in your chosen folder and put a copy of mspaint.exe.mui there. You can now create a shortcut to run Paint from this folder.
    Can I backup MS Paint? Solved - Windows 10 Forums.

    For the Snipping Tool you need to keep the two files SnippingTool.exe and SnippingTool.exe.mui.

    @Bree,

    Many thanks! Do you know of any way to extract a pre-"Snipping Tool is moving" version from say, an 1803 installation USB drive?

    Yes. You can open and explore the install.esd with 7-Zip File Manager. For 1803 there are folders numbered 1 to 7. Each corresponds to the index number for a particular version (in 1803 1 is Home). Inside each you'll find the standard Windows folder layout. Individual files can be copied to a folder of your choice. Make sure you use an 1803 install usb for the same language as the machine you want to copy it to, there will only be a .mui file for the language that the 1803 usb would install.

    In anticipation of that (having seen all the complaints here) I grabbed a copy of the update and installed it off-line before allowing Windows update to do its thing. Seeing a failed update is something that really bugs me.

    Thanks :) I haven't installed any insider builds for ages tbh, and its not that I'm not interested, more just a case of needing the PC to be trouble free and set up exactly as I want for other duties...

    My old Acer is way to slow to entertain running insider builds on, even for fun.
