Hey there @GE2, I hope you're having a good week so far!

 

Just to clarify, would you like to be able to save your screenshots without having the desktop app running or installed on your computer?

 

Or are you perhaps referring to opening the desktop app interface?

 

Let me know and we can go from there!

I've alredy installed DB app on my PC but when I make a screenshot, I can save it on my personal DB only if the app is running...
Thanks a lot

Hi @GE2, you're right, for screenshots to be saved and synced to your account, the desktop app must be running. 

 

However, you don't need to have the desktop app launched, it just needs to be running.

 

I hope this helps, but let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
