That's a good observation that /any/ tool you use often can be kept handy,
but having /all/ the tools you use handy is where clutter raises its ugly
head.

Being able to edit the HOSTS file, for example, just by typing "hosts" in
the "Start > Run" box, is handy, and negates the need to put a HOSTS.lnk
shortcut to clutter your taskbar.

Personally, I screenshot all the time with the Win+PrtScrn or
PrtScrn-and-paste method, where I rarely use SnippingTool.exe, so I
wouldn't want the Snipping Tool to clutter my menus.

The advantage of the "Start > Run" method is it avoids clutter. 

When I want it, I can just type snip!
