Add Snipping Tool To The Right Click Menu

A built-In tool native to the Windows platform from Windows 7 right through to the current version of Windows 10 named Snipping Tool, allows you to take screenshots and (as It's name Implies), snip any part of It and edit, save or send the Image thereafter. Wouldn't It be great If you could access It with a simple right-click of the mouse? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add the Snipping Tool to the right-click context menu.

I personally use Snipping Tool each and every day when Illustrating tutorials on this blog (this post Included!), and having the tool at my disposal, certainly makes my workflow more efficient. If you're anything like myself and take an array of screenshots on a daily basis, Inclusive of cropping & editing, then this tutorial Is for you.

To simplify Snipping Tool's accessibility, I will demonstrate how to add the option to the right-click of the mouse, thus It will be available as per the Image above. To do this, I will use a neat little Registry file that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry, and enable the option thereafter.

All that's required on your part, Is to double-click the file, follow a couple of prompts and the job's done. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further ado, let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:

One you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the Add Snipping Tool.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes as shown below.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

I've right-clicked on a blank area In File Explorer and as you can see, the Snipping Tool option Is readily available. Let's click on It to make sure It's functional.

Step Four:

As expected, Snipping Tool has executed and It's options are ready to be configured.

Last Step:

In the event you change your mind and want to remove Snipping Tool from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove Snipping Tool.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

It doesn't get any easier than this, does It? The good thing about this Implementation, Is that there's no need to manually edit the Windows Registry- which, If performed Incorrectly, can cause significant system Instability and/or loss of functionality. This tweak was performed on the 64-bit architecture of Windows 10, but also works on any 32-bit operating system.
