    Hello. Is there any way to make the Snipping Tool of Windows 10 work in Windows 7?
    I've copied the following files from a windows 10 installation:

    Code:
    │   SnippingTool.exe
    │
    ├───en-US
    │       SnippingTool.exe.mui
    │
    └───Manifests
            amd64_microsoft-windows-snippingtool-app_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.14393.0_none_c7386daaa0559849.manifest
            amd64_microsoft-windows-snippingtool-licensing_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.14393.0_none_5471ea7c999068c4.manifest
            amd64_microsoft-windows-snippingtool_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.14393.0_none_b5bd63d2721a1d07.manifest
    When trying to execute it on Windows 7 it displays this program cannot run on your PC. Has anyone managed to make it work?

    Isn't there already Snipping Tool in Win 7 under Accessories?

    Yes, but the Windows 10 variant is better.
