TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2016) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Windows 8.1 Usurps OneNote Snipper Tool

Usurper!

Well, not in the traditional “usurper” context, but I really like this word – so descriptive.  What has occurred of course, is that a higher-level product team basically said “too bad for you, we are taking the Windows+S key combination for OUR use.  Neener neener!  Or words and actions to that effect.  Which does not fit the definition of “usurp” – not exactly, but I really like that word. Adelante.

Which leaves us poor users in the lurch.  I don’t know about you, but I use TechSmith Snagit (tm) for screen caps. But I also use the snipper tool that comes with OneNote (oh so handy for those quickie screen caps that won’t need any editing, redacting, commenting, or other manipulation).  Until the other day when I updated to Windows 8.1 and discovered that my snipper tool looks a lot like Windows 8.1 Search.  Oddly, not only does snipper look like Windows 8.1 Search, but it functions just like Windows 8.1 Search. 

The Fix

Here is how to restore your beloved OneNote to its’ previous functionality

YMMV.
