[1] request the ability to crop via shortcut -
this is usually all I do in SC, so would be great if I could just select my area and e.g. Ctrl+Enter to crop (or even just Enter?)

currently 'Ctrl+R' does what you want. is this request meant to add another hotkey for the image crop?

@Stoic Joker: thanks for breaking down my thoughts, easier to digest i assume. smiley

So you are logged in with an account that is a member of the local administrators group (which would include Domain Admins)... Yes?
yes, i believe i had given myself the highest possible access.

I can't honestly say I've ever tried doing that. But I did try it just now and received a would you like to save or open link prompt from IE.
i can provide a use-case. e.g. you have a link shortcut (files ending in *.url) that you want to open in the non-default browser. so instead of double-clicking (which will open in defalt browser), i just drag the url shortcut to the non-default browser. of course assuming that non-default browser is already open.

Okay, this part is starting to make sense, if you are running an alternate shell as admin it's not supposed to work because DnD does not work between sessions. I frequently trip myself up with this when editing system files. If I run notepad as admin, then drag a file from desktop/explorer and drop it in notepad, nothing will happen because they're both in separate sessions.
ok, this is the part that is missing from the manuals. i always thought i am some sort of superuser who could cut through layers of security but apparently MS thought otherwise.

Even domain administrator accounts (and their shell's) run with restricted user level permissions when UAC is enabled. So any system level changes require selecting run as admin or clicking yes/ok on a UAC prompt at some point. So if something is being run as admin it will be in a different session and therefore not available to interact directly with other non elevated applications.
again, "different session" is the keyword here. so the mantra is: "all sessions are not created equal".

thanks again, SJ. i will keep these points in mind for the next time i start dragging and dropping. Thmbsup

You might find this useful:

thanks MilesAhead, i knew about this tweak but didn't see the need for it. i might give it a whirl and see if it solves the drag-n-drop issue.

134  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Why my Win7 suddenly goes amnesiac? on: February 23, 2014, 02:11:53 AM
I am running Win 7 Pro 64-bit with an admin level account. At times I would drag a url shortcut from the desktop on to the browser window but the action would fail silently, causing much frustration. I have to exit the browser and relaunch in admin mode for the drag-n-drop to be successful. the same goes if i am trying to interact between an explorer window and totalcmd window.

my uac setting is at default so why do the apps lapse into non-admin mode? does anyone else experience this situation?

Any reason you're considering that when there are a few freeware tools that do the same?  I've used both of these successfully:

i am using Rufus as well but it won't work on certain images, such as winxp recovery console. hence the search for an alternative boot maker.
141  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Has anyone here used Novicorp WinToFlash? on: February 10, 2014, 08:46:20 AM
as per title, just wondering if anyone had used this software? it basically makes a bootable usb from from the following OSes if you have the install disks: Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8.

the app is ad-ware and costs $5.77 for a personal license.

on the imm.io page, there are some alternatives listed. i googled their respective API, maybe of some use in case you want to add them to SC.

Imgur API - General Info
Photobucket API Overview

145  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Take a full page screenshot in Firefox using built-in commands on: February 04, 2014, 08:07:20 PM
here is a tip i found at Stack Overflow with regards to taking a full page screenshot within Firefox using built-in commands.

as posted by user enreas:
Since Firefox 16 you can press shift-F2 or go to Tools > Web Developer > Developer Toolbar to open a command line. Write:


and press Intro in order to take a screenshot.

To fully answer the question, you can even save the whole page, not only the visible part of it:

screenshot --fullpage

147  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Launch tabs from a text file in Firefox, Chrome, Opera,..... on: February 04, 2014, 06:33:49 PM
Is specially useful when you have to filter group of url's . I was using the tab groups in FF , but this tool is more flexible. And I can use more browsers now.
I am going to try just now if I can have more than six browsers.

glad to see it working well for you! i gather from the readme.txt, the app is hard-coded with a max of 6 browsers. to increase the limit, you may have to post a feature request to MilesAhead. Wink
