Wow!  Thanks VERY much to everyone for all these helpful suggestions. I decided to start with uninstalling HyperSnap and then re-installing it in the hope that perhaps that would bring back its control over CTRL-Shift-R. Right before I uninstalled it, I decided to try one more time to see whether by some miracle CTRL-Shift-R might function as a HyperSnap action.  Well, to my amazement, miracles apparently do happen. It worked!!  I was again able to capture whatever part of the screen I wished. I have no idea what caused it to be restored, but I'm thrilled. Needless to say, I'm saving all your responses, just in case it happens again and my supply of miracles has been used up.  Again, MANY THANKS!  :Thmbsup:

I'm hoping someone can help me with the following. A week ago, I upgraded my computer from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. All went well, and amazingly almost all my programs continued to work. That includes HyperSnap, a wonderful screen capture program that I've used for a zillion years or so. Today, when I started my computer, I saw a message on my screen that said that the following key combinations no longer work: CTRL-Shift-C, H, R, and X. The message also said "They may be in use in another program." The only one I'm concerned about is CTRL-Shift-R, which Hypersnap uses to capture part of a screen. I use it a lot, and I've used it several times since upgrading to Windows 10. But today it no longer works. When I use CTRL-Shift-R, nothing happens.

I'm wondering how best to deal with this. Can I re-set things so that HyperSnap controls CTRL-Shift-R? If so, how? Is there a way to find out which program currently has usurped that key combination? Though I'm very reluctant to switch to a different key combination after using the same one for many years, I'd like to know how to do that if I have to. Which is to say, how do I find out which key combinations AREN'T currently being used by anything on my computer? With so many possibilities, trial and error doesn't seem very practical. I've googled (or, rather, Duck Duck Goed) and have found lots of lists of Windows 10 shortcuts and one site that listed 12 programs that use CTRL-Shift-R, including HyperSnap. A few are programs I have on my computer (e.g, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Thunderbird, Firefox), but none of them were added in the last couple of days, and none of them interfered with HyperSnap's using that key combination when I used it up through yesterday.

I should add that I ran my daily security scan with Malwarebytes, and it came up clean.

I'd be most grateful for any suggestions/information you're able to offer.

Thanks very much, Steven, for the detailed information. I knew a small part of this, but not most of it. I'm a little unclear about a way around this. I always access LastPass through the browser. So even if I were to go to LastPass, copy my password, and paste or type it in, wouldn't my accessing LastPass through the browser (via the little red icon in the upper right corner) also be problematic?  I mean, I type my master password in order to access my vault in LastPass. Or is it just somehow the LastPass mechanism in 3.3.4 that makes me vulnerable? 


Yes, I think you're right that the last version of LastPass to work with  Pale Moon is 3.3.4. That's what I have on my computer, and it seems to work well. What sort of vulnerability does using it involve?

Steven, thanks very much for the helpful info about updating Linkman on Pale Moon. Given what you say about the differences between your version and mine being very small, I think for the moment I'll leave mine as it is. But I have your message saved (yes, I know I can find it here, but....), and if/when eventually I find a compelling reason to update, I know I'll find that message helpful.  Again, many thanks!
