When trying to make a new snip via the snipping tool, everything locks up (but the cursor can still move around).  You can access the options at CTRL+ALT+DEL but you will not be able to open Task Manager to manually close out of the app.  You also cannot relog in as the same user as the locked up issue will remain.  You need to do a restart and log in again.   

 

Side note:  the snip is never created (or at least not displayed on screen).

I have the exact same issue. My computer freezes when using the new Snipping Tool in Windows 11 21H2 (22000.258).
Same here. Was updating from Windows 10 on LENOVO model 20M90017GE.

@John_Smith_2021 yep same issue here. going to subscribe to this in the hope that someone finds and shares a resolution. 

Windows 11 21H2 OS Build 22000.258

Have encountered this before over the years from Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and now 11. Previously resolved with a display driver update but no joy with W11. Have also downgraded to earlier display drivers but no luck.
