SSC Automatically Opens Folder with screenshot
« on: October 03, 2013, 11:01:32 AM »
The behavior in SSC is that if you save the image to disk, it opens the location where you save it.  This is useful... sometimes.  But other times, it's a great annoyance (like when you're capturing several shots in a row).  Is there a way to turn this off?

"it opens the location where you save it."

are you referring to SC opening a windows file explorer window for the directory saved in?

Mouser - spelling mistake :  Miscellaneous  not Miscelaneous
.: I use K-Meleon - the browser you can control - but I love Pale Moon too :.

I spoke too soon.  That didn't stop the behavior.  I also tried restarting, but that didn't help either.

Seems to work here for me.  Can you check you are using the latest version, and then if the problem persists, can you be a little more specific about what actions you take and what behavior you experience.

What about this setting?
Does it do the same thing?

fyi, i have both checked, but no windows explorer window opens after shot or save/save as

the unsaved changes come up after closing the shot, like i want it to

i do have the pop-up choice dialog set to show
and then the main window comes up with the shot
but still no windows explorer

This is only for SAVE AS when you save in a different folder from your normal screenshot folder.

wraith try unchecking both of this.  in the next version i will move and label this better -- but unchecking both should surely solve your problem.

So, I'm using SSC 4.5.0

It seems that the setting that cmpm pointed out changed the behavior.  Even if I then check the other option that you originally pointed out, it still does not open, so that seems to do nothing.

Thanks for all of the help, everyone!

Ok... this came back, and both of the options are gone now!  ;D

How do I stop it from automagically opening the folder now?

Look on the Miscelaneous Tweaks tab.
