Windows XP is No Longer Supported or Secure. Unlike Windows Vista, Windows XP doesn’t have a great screen snipping tool. That being the case, it’s still possible to take Screen Shots, Screen Capture, or Screen Snip in Windows XP; it’s just not as easy OR sexy.
This feature is available on all versions of Windows, with the exception of Starter and Basic editions, and Windows XP. To open the program, click the Start button, select All Programs, followed by Accessories, and select the Snipping tool from the list.
