  1. Excellent. Solved the problem for me. I did a search to see if I could understand what it’s doing but I’m not quite getting it. Can you share what it’s doing and if you know, why it fixes the problem?

    1. So of course, I just found half my answer: it appears that it clears the clipboard. Any idea of why it solves the problem of the Snipping Tool constantly freezing my PC?

  2. Hi Jeff,

    I`m glad it solved your problem.
    like you found out your self, the command clears the Clipboard / Hidden cache of “Snips”.

    The problem must be that Windows can`t handle to many snips in its cache folder, i dont get why Microsoft not is cleaning it up over time.

  3. Thanks! This solved an issue where after clicking “save as” caused a ~30 second waiting period.
