More on Vista’s Snipping Tool

As you may recall, last week, I wrote an article about the Snipping Tool found in the operating system of Windows Vista. After it was featured in the newsletter, I received several e-mails with complaints of it not working. I didn’t understand why that would be happening, because when I tried it out, it worked just fine. Well, I got to searching around on the Web and I came across something I was not aware of when I wrote the tip. And I’m positive it’s the answer to all of your Snipping Tool problems. Let’s check it out!

To be able to use the Snipping Tool feature in Vista, you have to change some of your settings. Luckily, it’s very easy to do, so let’s get right to it! To begin, go to Start, Control Panel and click on the Programs link. Then under the Programs and Features section, click on the option that says “Turn Windows features on or off.” Once you do that, a new window will appear with a list of all the features Vista has to offer. You’ll see all kinds of things and some of them will be checked, while others are left alone.

Go ahead and scroll down until you find the Tablet PC Optional Components feature. Make sure that box is checked and then click OK. In order to be able to use the Snipping Tool, you must have that feature enabled. Otherwise, you won’t be able to find it on your computer, which is the problem most of you e-mailed me about. I do apologize for not looking into this before, but hopefully you’ve got everything fixed now and you can start snipping away. Have fun, my friends!
