Cannot delete file because it's already open in ScreenCaptor
« on: April 26, 2015, 10:44:14 AM »
Hello,

There's this annoying message that pops up sometimes when I want to delete a file from Windows File Explorer : it says that it's not possible because it's already open in Screenshot Captor. Yet I never ever opened that file on Screenshot Captor.

It is currently doing this for a video.

Is it possible to prevent Screenshot Captor from loading pics/videos into memory ? I just use screenshot captor to make screenshots. I don't need it for image or video editing. Thanks :)

i remember this issue -- thanks for reminding me to handle it.

but to answer your question, yes, you can tell Screenshot Captor to ignore videos, which should solve your problem.  It's on the Saving and Loading Files options tab:
