Microsoft confirms a Windows 11 error with the Snipping Tool.

A “This app can’t open – A problem with Windows is preventing Screen Snipping from opening. Refreshing your PC might help fix it” error may pop up if users try to utilize the Snipping Tool app. Microsoft’s community forums have filled up with questions regarding this issue.

Microsoft says for now to try this remedy:
