snipping tool stopped working

It worked yesterday but today when I clicked on New, it turned the screen grey and when I tried moving the +, it turned the area black. What's gone wrong?

Try a normal reboot.

Try System Restore to yesterday or before. (your personal files are not affected)

Or try an alternative such as Greenshot click here

There is a solution for this problem is to make a system restore, if this will not help you out then there is also an alternate method for this problem “Kill the snipping tool process and re-launch it”. In this way rebooting is not needed. You can simply open the “Task Manager” and right click on the snipping tool.exe process and click on the “End Process”. Once you re-launch this, it will start correctly.

I hope this information will help you out.
