I recently purchased a new computer and downloaded Windows 11.  I cannot get the Snipping Tool to work.  I have followed a million steps online that try to reset the snipping tool and nothing works.  I have spent way too much time trying to figure this out.  Print Screen does not work either.  HELP!!  :)

Try this:

1. Right click on the time at the bottom right and select "Adjust date and time"

2. Turn "Set time automatically" off

3. Click on "Change" in the "Set the date manually" section and change the date to the 30th of October

4. Try your Win+Shift+S keys and verifies that it works

5. Turn back "Set time automatically" back to on

@exrez  I just tried this and unfortunately, it did not work.  Thank you so much for offering the suggestion!  I don't know what to do to get this to work!! 

Another thing you can try then is uninstalling the snipping tool, update Windows with the latest updates, update your graphics drivers as well and then reinstall the snipping tool and see if that works
I am not sure how to do that but will start googling! Thank you!
