Please support Shift+Alt+PrtScr (Windows)

Please support Shift+Alt+PrtScr (Windows)

Helpful | Level 5

The screenshot feature on Windows 10 works well with:

  • PrtScr key (whole desktop)
  • Alt+PrtScr keys (single window with shadow)

Using these key combinations, a screenshot is automatically saved into the Screenshots folder in Dropbox.

The screenshot features does not recognize the key combination:

Using this combination, it simply does not save any screenshot to the Screenshots folder in Dropbox.

My suggestion:

Please make the screenshot feature on Windows also recognize Shift+Alt+PrtScr.

Uwe, pardon my ignorance...

The prtscr key which you mentioned is the one on the right of f12? Or, which else?

Shift+Alt+PrtScr is already a Windows shortcut to enable/disable High Contrast Mode.

Yes.

well i couldn't even figure out how to start a new thread lol. Anyways I just downloaded the wordpress plug in to back up my finance blog I just started and other sites to for work but I have limited space with the free account so im wondering if every time i back up these sites will the old back ups go away? I didn't see anything in the plugin setting referencing that. if someone could tell me how to start a thread that would be great thanks.

That's something you'd have to ask the developers of the plugin as it's not created by Dropbox.

if someone could tell me how to start a thread that would be great thanks.

Go into a topic, scroll to the bottom and click the big blue button.

Also, I've removed the link to your blog. No advertising here please.
