Strange Behavior With Picasa

(1/2) > >>

Hi Mouser.

If I am running Picasa and I take a screenshot a file is created by Picasa: eg
C:\Users\username\Pictures\Picasa\Screen Captures\Fullscreen capture 2052013 11921 PM.bmp

If I delete that Picasa folder and take another screenshot the path will be recreated.

The file above is bmp but my preferences are set to png by default.  I'm also using a different naming structure.

Don't autosave captures is also enabled.

I am baffled as to why this is occurring.  Do you know why this is happening?

This is Picassa being helpful ;) whether you want that help or not...

On my older Picasa install is made the folder under My Pics. There's no related settings in Options. I forget how I stopped it, and I dont have the most recent Picasa version - best do a search about how to stop it.
(I think I had to completely stop access to the folder - I see Folder Properties>Security/Permissions is set to 'deny')

Where is Picasa getting the file from?  Some temp directory?

I presume it steals the printscreen key, and either makes the screenshot itself, or uses wiondow's screenshot capability (probably the latter, which makes a bmp and places it on the clipboard).

Why do you ask?

Just curious.
