How can I get the Snipping Tool upon right-clicking in Windows 7?

Is it possible to get the Snipping Tool in Windows 7 to show up when you right click. This would make it easily accessible, and replace the old screenprint utility (freeware) that I used to use. Any ideas?

    I'm with Jack on this one. So simple to get it on a keyboard shortcut and painful scripting and registry manipulation to get it on the right click menu, but if you really must, this program will help you do it so you don't have to modify the registry by hand:

    You probably could, but why have it for rightclick? What happens if you need to right click on something, say to open a new tab, or to create a new document?

    I think it would be better to setup a keyboard shortcut instead.
