Accessing the Windows Snipping Tool

Hi all,

Wondered if you guys with a V can access the Windows Snipping tool via the hotkey (Win + Shift + S) using the V’s keyboard?

I seem unable to but am not sure why.

Cheers in advance!

Have you tried with both shift keys? For me it only works with the right shift key.


My mind has been blown!

Odd show it doesnt work with Left Shift.

Thanks for the help!


With my Brydge keyboard, I can use the Windows Snipping Tool with either the left Shift key (best way) and the right Shift key just fine. Maybe it’s a problem with the V keyboard cover?


Any explanation though? I really have the impression it had worked once on my keyboard. As you guys, using my left “shift” key does not work but it works with my right shift key, and it’s actually not really practical (like the pain of going back in a browser)

I’m surprised it worked before. The left shift key has always been like that as you can see in this thread:

There was a request to fix fit it but it was never done and the thread was deleted by Eve:

The only workaround is to use a tool like Autohotkey.
