    Snipping Tool, Steps Recorder


    Hi all,
    I'm running Windows 8 on a new Toshiba Satellite laptop. Every time I try to use the snipping tool, the steps recorder or the sound recorder it reverts from the screen I have open to the desktop screen. Even the print screen key doesn't work, even if I press it in conjunction with ALT, CTRL, SHIFT or WINDOWS keys. Can anyone help please?

    I use Jing for snipping.
    It's free and very professional looking.
