N.A.N.Y. 2023 / Re: NANY 2023: Database Designer
« on: May 28, 2023, 03:01 AM »
This is actually the first announced NANY 2024 entry (not 2023) :D

Post New Requests Here / Re: Create Song Playlist
« on: May 20, 2023, 03:06 AM »
And there is always our own Skwire, he created sPlaylistMaker, some time ago, that most likely does what you require.

The Microsoft .exe installers are often just a wrapper around an MSI installer. MSI is a little easier to integrate in automated deployment.

Screenshot Captor / Re: Getting Prompted during Delete Back
« on: March 09, 2023, 03:20 PM »
You could check the file C:\Users\<username>\Documents\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.ini for any Delete option that might be in the 'wrong' state.
Most likely closing SSC completely, then removing that option (or commenting by inserting a semicolon at the start of the line) and restarting SSC will resolve that (untested...).

Check out the Window Capturing 1 and 2 option panels (after enabling the settings there on the Miscellaneous Tweaks page: 'Enable aero window capturing options even on Win8/Win10'), there may be tweaks that might help in resolving this issue.

Living Room / Re: Apple Lisa, the first (modern) GUI
« on: January 26, 2023, 11:58 AM »
I actually owned a Lisa XL (3.5" 400k diskdrive and 10 MB harddrive) for a while, somewhere in the 1988-1989 time-range. But, working on the PC-side of IT, I didn't use it much (if any), so ended up selling it, way too cheap, at a local computer-fair. Made that guy's day, I guess :tellme:

Q: How do I return from relative mode (after clicking once) back to absolute coordinates mode?
I do not understand, it never change its coordinate system since I do use a low level mouse hook.

I think my question is invalid, did a quick test when I asked as I got somewhat confused, but now that I looked a bit longer (and closer) it's working just fine.

Looking great :Thmbsup:

You could use the NANY template (Add preset text) for the presentation of this tool.

Q: How do I return from relative mode (after clicking once) back to absolute coordinates mode?

As usual, your thinking is backward/reversed.

But if you really want to do it that way, then you can use SysInternals' ZoomIt to draw/write on your (still being updated) screen, and take a screenshot afterward. Don't forget to RTFM!


Preferably without ... or has ads etc.

I think that's wishful thinking.

ScreenshotCaptor is quite good at this, I use it for multi-page screenshots from browsers on a regular (like weekly) basis. It does take a little getting used to, but mouser made a lot of video tutorials on the subject. Recommended!

No, no and no.


The only thing they have in common is "Transfer Protocol", but there are about 50* more of these.

* (the number is rather irrelevant)

Just press the <Enter> key after selecting the files/folders.

Screenshot Captor / Re: Grab selected region makes screen go big
« on: September 02, 2022, 12:29 AM »
hitting PrtScrn, which is my hotkey for "Grab Selected Region," makes the screen go big and selecting a region useless.

Most likely another tool is (also) hooking into that hotkey, most notably OneDrive IIRC, please try to (temporarily) change the hotkey for this feature and see if it still behaves like that

Most everyone I know has the opposite experience.
+1 :tellme:

General Software Discussion / Re: Multiple Android app instances
« on: August 15, 2022, 01:59 AM »
Unfortunately it's not possible.

Have you really asked 'm? Your response is a bit too quick to have gotten a honest reply from the developer(s).

« on: August 14, 2022, 03:58 PM »
Is there a cheap way to operate these five sensors?

Ask the developer of that software to fix that, it seems like quite a severe and unneeded limitation.

I think it needs to be repeated that this issue is a long standing 'undesirable feature' of Windows (lmgtfy link), and should not be attributed to Screenshot Captor. :tellme:

What browser (and version) are you using?

Living Room / Re: Random M.2 SSD Disconnects
« on: July 11, 2022, 12:25 AM »
You could request a replacement under warranty from the supplier, as it clearly doesn't work as is to be expected & intended.

General Software Discussion / Re: The End of the Atom Editor
« on: June 09, 2022, 01:55 AM »
Did anyone else use Atom?
Nope, tried it once, a couple of years ago, and couldn't get along with it very well, so stayed at Notepad++, until someone showed me the benefits of VSCode, and I've been kind of an addict for that ever since :tellme: (though I also use NPP for some tasks).

Synchronize It! and Compare It! - superb GUI design, I still use them to this day for small simple jobs - one can still buy them, they still work, but unfortunately not upgraded for many many years. Synchronize It! can even copy sparse files, which is extremely rare.
I've been a licensed used for, AFAIR, over 20 year, and still use it at least a couple times a month, and sometimes even on a daily basis. Best compare tools ever :Thmbsup:

Living Room / Re: Arduino anyone?
« on: May 27, 2022, 02:02 AM »
You've added quite some features :o :Thmbsup:

The keyboard keys look a bit 'clunky', but are probably very useful just because of that, a touch screen display isn't that practical in the kitchen, during preparing & cooking ;D

Screenshot Captor / Re: Windows 11 round edges transparency
« on: May 23, 2022, 10:13 AM »
+1 similarly for scrolling screen captures, those gray rounded corners are included somewhat irregularly in the result, as a rectangle is cut out for the captured window :huh:

NB: There is a dirty hack available that changes uDWM.dll, but that is not something I want to have as a 'fix', as it is a little to blunt for me. And it might break with future Windows updates.
