Here are 5 fixes you can try in order to solve the Snipping Tool not working problem.

🔥Enable App Permissions

If your Snipping Tool doesn't have access permission, it can not work. Navigate to Settings > Apps > Installed Apps > Snipping Tool > Advanced Settings> Apps & Features, and enable the Snipping Tool App Permissions button.

🔎Clean System Space

If the system has too many programs running at the moment, it may also conflict with the Snipping Tool program. You can open Task Manager and end non-essential processes.

💡Repair and Reset

Of course, if there is a problem with the Snipping Tool itself, it may not work. Therefore, you need to fix and reset the program.

Navigate to Settings > Apps > Snipping Tool > Advanced options> Settings > Apps > Snipping Tool > Advanced options. Then Hit the Repair and Reset button.

🎯Uninstall and Reinstall

If the program error is due to a version update, you will need to uninstall and reinstall Snipping Tool.

Open the Add or Remove Programs window, find the Snipping Tool, and hit the Uninstall option. After uninstalling it, now you should reinstall the Snipping Tool from the Microsoft Store.
