Check How to Fix ‘Snipping Tool Not Working on Windows 11’ Issue
You are not alone if you have noticed strange problems with several of Windows 11’s built-in programs and features since the calendar changed to November. An expired digital certificate prevents certain users from “opening or using some Windows built-in programs or sections of some built-in applications,” according to a post on the Microsoft Known Issues for Windows 11 website.
The Snipping Tool, the Accounts tab of the Settings app (but only while running Windows in S mode), the Touch Keyboard, Voice Typing, the Emoji Picker, the Input Method Editor, and the Tips app are among the affected programs. There are no signs that any of these apps in Windows 10 have been compromised.
How to fix it
Solution 1: install Windows update KB5008295
Microsoft Teams has officially fixed the issue that caused the Snipping Tool to stop working after October 31 for Windows 11 users in beta and release preview channels. All you need to do to troubleshoot the Widnows + Shift + S keyboard shortcut not working is check for updates in Settings and install the updates available to you. FYI, KB5008295 is the particular update that fixes the Snipping Tool issue among other issues. Read Microsoft’s announcement here.
To install the KB5008295 update, open the Settings application by pressing Windows + i at the same time. Then click windows update to the left and then windows update at the top, again.
Click the “Check for Updates” button to check if there are updates available for your PC. Once the update is downloaded, Restart your PC to install the update.
If no update is available, try fix n. 2, as it will also fix the problem permanently.
Solution 2: change the date and go back
Finally, a properly working solution is available, all thanks to Microsoft Tech Community member Ged_Donovan. Apparently, to fix the problem that the Windows + Shift + S shortcut is not working, you need to change the date in Settings on your PC to October 30, use Windows + Shift + S to take a screenshot, and then reverse the date to last date. That’s how:
Press Windows + i on your keyboard to open the Settings app. Or click the Settings icon on the Start menu.
Click Time and language and later Date and Time.
In the ‘Set time automatically’ option, click the toggle button on the right to turn it off.
Click Change under ‘Set date and time manually’.
Change the date to “October 30, 2021.” It is not necessary to change the time.
Click Change to save the date as “October 30, 2021”.
Try Windows + Shift + S to take a screenshot now. It should work.
Try Windows + Shift + S shortcut now, it should still continue to work.
