    Unfortunately, the message is built into the tool. The only GPO for snipping tool is to prevent it from running. You could minimize the the message, but unknown if that will stick when deployed to other systems.

    Hi ,

    As Annabooks said, the message is built into the tool. There is no way to hide this message if you want to use this tool. If possible, I would suggest you just ignore the above message.

    Best Regards,

    So just ignore or disable a perfectly good tool. And for what? The new snip and sketch is awful to use and will be the first thing that gets removed once we upgrade Windows 10.
