Most everyone I know has the opposite experience.

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).

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?

You could request a replacement under warranty from the supplier, as it clearly doesn't work as is to be expected & intended.

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:

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

+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.

This time I put what fellows usually write to me :

Look who's talking ;D You have picked up some of the advice presented here :Thmbsup:

AMD's not supporting Thunderbolt

Is that a requirement? Are you planning to buy devices that need that? That kind of devices is mostly so specific that you're on Apple equipment already (and even they seem to move slowly away from TB), or can easily be substituted by USB 3.0 connected devices.

Living Room / Re: Arduino anyone?

I've been actively involved in Arduino based programming since about 2 years now (and a user of the project I'll mention below for about 4 years), but I skipped the Arduino hardware and went straight to the IMHO more capable Espressif ESP hardware based boards, using ESP8266 and ESP32 controller, as these come with WiFi built in (and ESP32 even with bluetooth, but I don't use that). These boards can be bought from Aliexpress starting at only a few $$, where the Arduino hardware is usually less powerful and more expensive.

I've been involved with ESPEasy (github link and support forum), that is intended to make it easy to use sensors in an IoT/domotica setting.
Lots of functionally already available 'out of the box', with a web UI served from the controller (no cloud involved, other than github for development and the support-forum, obviously). You can find my involvement by looking for my avatar :D
NB: Though I do some occasional hardware tinkering, I'm mostly in this 'game' for the software-side (C++) of it.

But with current (low) prices for storage, why does it matter?

That's a somewhat unfair comparison, as docx is a compressed container format (you can view the contents using a tool like 7-zip), where the other 3 are uncompressed. If you compress those files to f.e. zip files, the figures will be more comparable. And most likely docx will then be the largest, but also contain the most elaborate mark-up/formatting data.

Screenshot Captor / Re: I have a new problem“memory is out”
« on: March 30, 2022, 05:51 AM »
My computer use eight display monitor(all is 4K 3840X2160)

That will most likely result in a screenshot larger than 2GB, but SSC can only allocate up to 2GB of memory, as it is a 32 bit application. That's not easy to change.

You can screenshot each monitor separate and stitch the images together.

Wouldn't it be easier to use a simple xpath expression to extract the matching element(s)?
Select-Xml -XPath "//variable[id='this-is-the-node']"

All of your design skills in one place ;D

No kidding, I like it for it's plain vanilla interface. :Thmbsup:

Guess the name should start with a lower-case s, as that's a common prefix for many of Skwire's specialist tools :Thmbsup:

I'm pretty sure you can rework that SAS script to accept a filename in a variable (never used or interpreted SAS script, but did a quick google search on it), so executing the script while passing the filename(s) should be really doable.
This is only to avoid getting stuck with a 'one trick pony' tool ;D
And adjusting the script will improve someone's skills, if not yours :P

Just a suggestion, but wouldn't it be much more efficient to improve the 'script' to handle any filename? This workaround seems so inefficient, and prone to bite you in the behind, sometime soon.
