Correct. It now opens within a second. Just tested it.
I'm guessing that you now find the Snip Tool more useful
Mine takes two or three seconds to appear. Obviously, I'd prefer the
speed that Bob I sees, but my small delay is no big deal to me.
I used and loved the snipping tool a great deal in my previous computer
which is why I was annoyed when it took so long to start in the new
faster computer. But that is now past history. Thank you very much for
Well, I wouldn't have been happy with such awful performance either, and
I'm glad it was solvable.
OTOH, I don't think I helped you, but other people did - so I'll assume
that's who you were thanking
I'm getting slowly but surely to an age when that's sounding like a
When I was younger I might have protested that they said that about Van
Gogh's things; or maybe even Picasso's Guernica. But now I delight in
any comment about youthful health and vigour in anything I do or say.
The old "optimization gotcha". ;-)
I've found another sneakily hidden Win7 program that does just that; and
Windows Journal, under Tablet PC.
Here's another Ed classic doodle;
I still think you're a lot better than Jackson Pollack, but I'm not
among those people who seem to think he's great.
I kind of liked the Archaic Greek koroi in the lower right, but that
wasn't your work.
OK, now I have to check out the program you mentioned.
But not now - I just tried it, and it requires me to install some
Windows printing software, so I'll wait for a while.
< 7KB and numerous lines of text snipped >
For a thread about a snipping tool it is ironic that no one bothered to snip
prior\irrelevant lines of text on each response...
I was thinking the same thing...
I had noticed the lack of snipping, but I remained a bad boy.
And please take note of my inappropriate snipping here
It's an optional install. I just said "no".
You're a snip off the old block.
I'll have to bloch your efforts to chip off my self esteem.
Hmm. That's what I expected, but when I said no, it quit the
This computer stuff is just too complicated for me
I'll look again later.
This is my latest; I call it "Ego".
History is puzzling. Why did Joe Soap make war on Fred Frandango? Well,
we just don't know; but we have some ideas.
So then we'll teach them "political history"; the story of the kids at
the top. Napoleon v the Duke of Wellington, Hitler v Montgomery and
But what about the poor unenfranchised masses? The ones who slaved away
to build Spitfires, and go unrecorded.
Well, they're just cannon fodder; they don't count; like grains of sand
on the beaches. When God welcomes the new intakes in through the Pearly
Gates, he and St Peter only debrief the top echelons to find out how
things are going down here.
Hang on a minute, I'm as good as you. I might not be sprinkled with
star-dust and Tinsel-town glitter; but I count, pal.
Ok then, we all count. Each life has meaning. In fact you can only
embody the story of human life in the lived experience of an individual;
any individual, or at least any thinking individual. The life of an
whore to a Chinese emperor is as valuable as that of a Roman emperor;
and God debriefs them especially.
So then, there you have it; my little ego-portrait.
Ed the thinker.
OK, now tell me, how did Nessie get to the lake in your top picture?
Did you kidnap (monsternap?) her?
SLOW STARTUP SNIPPING TOOL SOLVED! 11Feb 2016 , For me at least.
I have win7 with two screens on a desktop. I have had this snipping tool 30 sec startup problem for ages, very annoying. Today I changed my pagefile to "custom size" from 8GB to the recommended 12GB (the exact recommended number 12153) and Lo and behold, its working now for the first time ever! I have a 3 sec startup. I have tried all other published solutions to no avail.
