126 Software / Screenshot Captor / Command-line option starts a new instance of SC on: April 14, 2014, 07:23:08 AM
i have a shortcut on my desktop with the following command, "<path>\ScreenshotCaptor.exe -scan". whenever i click this shortcut to initiate a scan, SC gets launched in a new instance and only then the scan command is carried out. in the end, i end up with two SC icons in the system tray. is there a setting to avoid this? thanks!

130  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / ODROID-U3 Community Edition at a special price - $59 plus shipping on: April 07, 2014, 11:43:14 PM
Hardkernel, the people behind ODROID series have come up with "ODROID-U3 Community Edition" which is the same as the normal U3 but with the following clauses: "$59 is special price only for this community edition for personal use outside Korea. And the maximum order quantity is limited to one unit for one person".

This is one of the few single-board computers that I found enticing due its power-packed features. Among others it comes with a Samsung Exynos quad-core processor (same as a Samsung Galaxy 3 iirc) and 2gb of ram plus ethernet slot and 3 usb ports (not usb 3.0 though).

from my experience, dotnet runtimes are easily broken and a repair/reinstall might help. the following links are useful and i have used them in the past.

wrt to the hotkeys, i prefer to use the 'Delete' key and 'Shift'+'Delete' (bypass Recycle Bin) for deleting files in accordance with Windows hotkeys. thus freeing up Ctrl+Q for other tasks.

i used to have that problem a long long time ago but back then i was using a cheapo mouse. nowadays, i alternate between Logitech MX518 and G602. however if your Logitech mouse is causing the problem, can't you just RMA it?

thanks MerleOne, it didn't seem like a hardware issue. anyway, what is the situation at your system?

have you tried this?
142 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: [SC] Minor Requests on: February 25, 2014, 05:31:24 AM
[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?

uncheck the following option, "Filename Balloon Tip in Tray" in Preferences > Post-Capture Options.

@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:
Take Ownership Context Menu Shortcut
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.

147  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?
