    Snipping tool location

    In case anybody is wondering where the snipping tool is hiding in WCP you can find it here. Once found you can pin it to the task bar.

    Thanks brummerfan, the reason I had to dig around for the snipping tool is because I couldn't find the Apps page that you are now showing?

    I haven't a clue on how to get to that page.

    Thanks zigzag3143, that was the only button I haven't tried yet LOL.

    Search never seems to find anything for me but now all the sudden just about everything is there. I was wondering where all that stuff was.

    Yes talk about a revelation, what a relief, I was beginning to think that Microsoft forgot to put all that stuff in the Op system.

    Hi chev65,
    I had to look for Disk Clean Up and Defrag as MS haven't added in Metro, eventually found in Administrative tool and had to pin them.

Snipping Tool
Is it just me or is anyone else having trouble accessing the Snipping Tool from the new Metro Start? I seem to be able to click on it, but then nothing happens... I've resorted to making a desktop shortcut for now, but was wondering if anyone had the issue fixed.
