Explains how to assign a Windows Hot Key Short Cut to the Snipping Tool in Windows 7.

Windows 7 has a pretty awesome new screen shot utility that allows you to highlight a part or all of your screen and save it to .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, and .HTML (.MHT). Well what if you were able to assign a hotkey to the snipping tool for easier access? Wouldn't hurt, huh?

Here's How to Assign a Hot Key Short Cut to the Snipping Tool in Windows 7.

  1. Start
  2. All Programs
  3. Go to Accessories
  4. Right Click on Snipping Tool
  5. Select Properties
  6. Now simply enter in the shortcut key text box something like CTRL+F12.
  7. Ok

Now every time you press CTRL+F12 simultaneously your Windows Snipping Tool will be available. Keep in mind you can do this with many windows programs.

Thank you. Only problem is I'll be going around to other PCs, pressing ctrl+F12 and yelling "WFT?"
