Updated windows to the creators version and lost screen clip to Onenote

OneNote 2016 Screen clip lost

Update to Windows Creator edition


On my computer since I started using OneNote I have been sending screen clips to OneNote and it would prompt me to save to a section or clipboard. Since the install of creator edition this seems to have stopped.  In the past I believe this happened around the release of 8.1. Microsoft implemented search using WinKey+S so OneNote was changed to use Shft+WinKey+S. Well now with what seems to be a new hidden clip feature the clip to one note stopped working.

I found old solutions for the workaround to the search issue and this seems to have solved my new issue I just have to get used to the new keys. I am now using Shft+WinKey+A to screen clip to OneNote.


Simple explanation ad new key if it did not exist in the registry for one note to change the key that it uses for screen clipping.

Technical Facts

  1. 1 Open registry editor
  2. 2 Locate key for current version of one note Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\OneNote\Options\Other
  3. See if the key ScreenClippingShortcutKey exists
  4. No key create new reg_dword key named “ScreenClippingShortcutKey”
  5. Set Value to 41 for the letter “a” to be the hot key.
