    I just did a System Recovery on my Vista desktop and the Snipping Tool is
    not there now. I can't seem to find a place to download it from. How can I
    replace it as I use it quite a bit. TIA

    Find the snipping tool in C:\Windows\Windows32 and create a new
    shortcut.

    Thanks for the reply but there is no windows32 under C: Windows in Home
    Premium. There's a System32 but no Snipping tool under that. Turning on
    Windows Features/Tablet PC OptionalComponents brought it up as per another
    posters advice. I still don't know where the exe for it hides. Agent
    Ransack only finds the shortcuts and it's the best search software I've ever
    used.

    See reply to K. Bloch. Under C: Windows in both Vista (32 bit) and W7 Home
    Premium (64 bit), it goes from Web to Winsxs - there is no windows32.

    You are 100% wrong, but I think I know why.

    Try this:

    Open up Windows Explorer and select Organize on the menu bar.


    Click Folder and search options, then the View tab.

    Uncheck Hide operating system files. TO be safe, also select Show
    hidden files, folders, and drives.

    Note a couple of things.

    1. I am not "K." Bloch, as in your other post.

    2. The directory is not C: Windows, it is C:\Windows, and you are
    looking for C:\Windows\windows32.

    Here's a handy trick. If you know the name of the file, highlight
    anything in the file pane (just to be sure it has the focus) and type
    the first letter or two of the name. If you type the first letter and
    wait a second or two, type it again to get the next file or folder
    starting with that name.

    That's especially convenient when the files are sorted in some strange
    order (just a joking way to imply non-alphabetic).

    Thanks, that's good to know. It works like a charm. :^)

    You make me notice my typo :)

    Should've been "starting with that letter".
