No, the snipping tool is working on my Windows 11 desktop. PrntScr key brings it up with choices of Rectangular, Freeform, Windows, or FullScreen snip. Alternate shortcut is Win+Shift+S.
In Windows 10, the PrntScr key sequence works just as it did in ancient windows times (snapshots the desktop to the clipboard). In Windows 10 there is a "Snipping Tool" app (that is being retired in favor of the "Snip and Sketch" app going forward) that I thought might be what you were referring to on your laptop.

Snip and Sketch adds cropping and markup tools to the Snipping Tool.

I was referring to the fact that the Snipping Tool app is still available in Windows 11. If I click the Windows key and start typing "Sn" the Snipping Tool app is what shows up as a result. The results window offers to open the app or take a snip with a few seconds delay. Yes, a window appears after I take a snip offering to open Snip & Sketch so that I can save it or edit it. And Windows 11 is on my desktop machine, not my laptop.
