It's still there for me. I've not moved to the 'newer' version and my OS is up to date.

Pressing Windows Logo+ shift + S  give a darkened screen and a selection bar at the top with various choices - select the snip.

I gave this very advice a week ago.

I am now of the opinion that the Opís best course of action is taking an image of the screen with their mobile phone and using said image.

It's always worth trying again in case something was missed.

If it's a newspaper article from such as the FindMyPast/BNA collection, I've found that a far better way to obtaining a copy is just to download the whole page and then zoom to the article itself.  I usually then snip the relevant article but it's not necessary.

You must be finding this very frustrating. Try this solution I found online.

Press the Win Key+R  together to bring up the Run box.

Enter:
 %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
(You can copy and paste it in)

That should take you to the Programs folder, where Windows Accessories ought to be. Right click on that, and select Pin to Start, which should place it as a tile on the start menu.
