Lost snipping tool on windows 10 laptop

Found 16th Oct 2017
As in title. dog jumped on keyboard and the screen turned around, I'm not good with tech so decided to system restore, it took ages and I've lost bits and pieces that were there before.
Does anyone know how I can get the stuff back, specially snipping tool and the snips of pictures I've taken please?
Can you explain in a way that I'll understand?

It's a simple fix when the screen turns around press

Control alt and arrow key to change the screen rotation
Type in snipping tool in the search bar then while you're using it pin it to your taskbar (right click on the icon and select Pin to taskbar) if you regular use it like me.

Ranks one of my all time favourite Microsoft Tools. Remember the olden days of "print screen,paste,edit in paint" especially when you have an overzealous department about installing programs and locked down laptops/desktops.

Just looking at yours is making me feel sad! I miss mine, how can I have deleted it when it came installed on laptop? the edge thing is a bit dodgy too but I never used that.
