Missing Snipping Tool in Windows 7

I live my little snipping tool to capture bits of screen to share tips and stuff on this blog and in my decks, but since I moved to in Windows 7 it’s gone aaarrghh! Annoyingly all my mates (both of them) have got it on their machines so where did it go?

Apparently it’s part of the tablet specific optional features and I didn’t have this selected. So to fix it (and now I have the tool installed I can show you!) go to programs and features (you can just type that in on the search bar to go straight to it) and from there select turn windows features on or off ..

..and check the option for Tablet PC Components.

For my blog I also use a lot of the picture editing tools in Windows Live Writer especially crop  and border style you can get the latest version of this free blogging tool here.
