:cry: Man. I hate having to relearn how to do everything. I want to pin the snipping tool to my taskbar like I had on my old computer. It's throwing me that I have to go into the start checkerboard thing and go searching for the application every time. (Ugh, I don't even know the terminology anymore.) How do I do this? At the very least, I'd like it on my desktop - someplace where I can launch it quickly when I need it.

Never mind, figured it out. When I launch the app I simply right click to pin it. That was an easy one!

Computer > Drive C: > ProgramData > Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu > Programs > Accessories > Snipping Tool

Or, if you're one of those traitors who use Metro, Search > "Snip" > Right-click > Pin to Taskbar. :)

Thanks! Our posts must've crossed but it's good to know the path. Hmm, what's this metro?
