Snipping Tool In Windows 8

I like Snipping Tool in Windows 7. It has helped me a lot in creating screen shot of important visuals from various applications. It is a wonderful tool. In Windows 8 there is no start menu so it is not straight forward to find this tool. Here are some simple steps you can follow to use Snipping Tool in Windows 8.

  • Click on key on your keyboard that has windows logo on it.
  • It will bring up your old style desktop. Now click on Windows Explorer icon in tool bar to bring up explorer.
  • Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 folder (assuming C drive is system drive).
  • Look for SnippingTool.exe file in that folder. Right click on it and drag it desktop and choose the option of creating shortcut.
