[...Having said that, I see an unpleasant aspect -- when you hit Ctrl+V it will create a new image file, but the image file will be called "Clipboard Image.bmp" and be in bmp format.

Odd. I get nothing pasted in Windows Explorer, but a .png file in xplorer².

same here with Windows Explorer, and a jpeg file in Directory Opus...


(Win7, 64 bit)

When I try to paste into Win Explorer I don't get anything (and Paste in the context menu is grayed out). However, I can open mspaint and paste in the image, so it must be in the clipboard. (I didn't realize that this functionality is supposed to be present because I didn't see any options for it or suggestion that it was possible in the description I read :-)

This is on a WinXP x64 machine. I'll try later on my Win7 32-bit laptop. Maybe it's a 64-bit shell issue?

try using the post capture "Pop Up Choice Dialog" - you may not want to stick with it, but it will give you an overview of possibilities.
enable via:
Preferences > Interface Options 1 > Pop Up Choice Dialog

Thanks for the suggestion, but there are no options for "simply open a windows explorer window and paste" :-).

Also, I tried on my Win7 Pro 32-bit laptop and still got nothing when pasting into explorer :-(. I'm gaining an appreciation for all of the coolness of Screenshot Captor, though!

skwire:
patku, I can write you a small script that should work for you.  However, you would need to have a certain option turned on in your Windows Explorer options.  Namely, this one:

DONE: Paste a screenshot in windows explorer

Also, this script will not use the standard Ctrl+V hotkey.  You're just asking for trouble trying to override standard hotkeys like that.  I currently have it using Win+V but can change that to whatever you want.  Would this be acceptable?
