How to restore Screenshot Captor settings?
« on: April 25, 2018, 07:07 PM »
I had to reinstall windows 10 a couple days ago and can't figure out how to load my old screenshot captor settings from my backup. I already attempted copying the my documents folder (C:\users\USERNAME\My Documents\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor\) as instructed in this thread, but my settings are still default. I was careful to make sure the path was right (the new install created the new folder in My Documents, and I deleted the contents and replaced them with my backup files).

Is there something else I could do?

It sounds like you did the right thing, your old settings should be on your old pc at C:\users\USERNAME\My Documents\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.ini.
Make sure on your new computer that you exit Screenshot Captor and then copy over the old files and then restart it.
Note: if you install the portable version of Screenshot Captor then you would put the files in the same directory as it.
