Snipping Tool Windows 11 Download [ Official Microsoft ]

Want to Download Snipping Tool for Windows 11?

If yes then you are in the right place.

Everyone knows that Microsoft released its latest Windows OS with lots of new features and upgrades.

One major upgrade that I really liked is changing the Classic Snipping Tool with the new updated Snip & Sketch app.

New updated interface with lots of new features like a ruler, annotate, protractor, crop, and screenshot to share are great.

But I have seen many users, reported that the new Snip and Sketch application is not working and also the shortcut is missing.

In that case, the easiest way to fix this issue is to manually reinstall the snipping tool on your Windows 11 PC.
