In the CHS settings
, I had set ScreenshotCaptor
as the External image editor (optional)
for image clips, by putting C:\UTIL\Windows utilities\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.exe
into the field provided.
This had been working perfectly for several weeks/months - until today.
Today I wanted to edit an image clip in CHS, and when I selected the Launch image editor to edit clip
, up popped a completely foreign
image editor, and it was not immediately apparent what this editor was. On investigation it turned out that it was a new (to me) Win10 app - Windows Paint
I literally said to myself "How on earth did that get there?".
On checking the CHS settings, the field for the External image editor (optional)
was now blank
, so a Win10 update, or something, had presumably removed/hijacked this setting and forced the invisible default to the Windows Paint app.
So I reset it with C:\UTIL\Windows utilities\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.exe
and it now works fine, but presumably a Win10 update, or something, will hijack the settings again.Question:
How does one make this setting "sticky" and block a similar hijack from recurring?
To avoid this recurring, is it going to be necessary to (say) restore permanent CHS settings from a settings backup
file first, each time CHS is started up?
