Print Screen automaticly open and paste
« on: February 01, 2007, 08:51:49 PM »
Hey all
Was just thinking about how I use the Print Screen button a lot and then hit <Start key>+R and type MSPAINT.exe and THEN hit <Ctrl>+V to paste my pic into the window. How about an app that, when the Print Screen button is pressed and Windows captures the screen, a program sees the button being pressed, launches MSPAINT.exe and pastes the picture into the window. I know I could just use Mousers really cool ScreenshotCaptor, but it takes too long to load on my machine and I don't use any features but "Take images of active window"  ;D. Could anyone do this?

Screenshot Captor could launch an external editor upon capture (see pic)

but since you don't want SC running in the background, try IrfanView. i use it as my USB app (ie. when away from my PC). it can do a screen-capture and you can edit on after that..

 :) Or use PasteScreen!

To use it, save the script as PasteScreen.ahk, and install AutoHotkey.
