I have a Snippets Tab in Visual Studio 2008

Is there a way to export those so that the rest of our team can have the same snippet tab?

    If you mean in the Toolbox, then you can simply go to Tools...Imports and Export Settings...Export selected environment settings.

    Uncheck everything but the Toolbox under the General Settings.

    Distribute the generated file to the time. They simply need to import it through the same tool.

    Note that there is no way to filter so that only the snippets are distributed. You need to export the whole Toolbox configuration.
