Snipping Tool Download
Snipping Tool is a screen capturing tool included in some versions of Microsoft Windows. You can use the Snipping Tool to capture screenshots, save the screenshots and email screenshots. If you cannot find the Snipping Tool on your computer, then it is probably because you have a non-premium version of Windows which does not include it. Microsoft therefore also does not offer a free Snipping Tool download.
Capture ScreenShot lite is a free Snipping Tool alternative. This Snipping Tool clone looks and acts pretty much the same as the original. In addition the free Capture ScreenShot lite can print screenshot snips. This is a function which is not included in the original Microsoft Snipping Tool for Windows.
