You can tell Screenshot Captor itself to open after each capture, where you can see your image in a large view and do things with it, etc.

If instead what you really want is for Screenshot Captor to stay completely minimized and open a different program with each screenshot after the screenshot has been taken, you could use this option:
Screenshot - 6_23_2020 , 4_24_26 PM.png

But I'm open to the idea of adding an option that says to open the screenshot in the default viewer after each capture if that's something people want.

Well, according to this guide, it's not possible to start the Photo Viewer directly providing a filename (see step 4 in chapter 2: "Open the Photo Viewer With the Command Prompt"), but if you have configured Windows Photo Viewer as your default program for the image format you have chosen in SC (usually .png), you just enable the checkbox mouser showed above, and add %file% on its own in a blank line of the edit box. Works like a charm here.


Btw, it's not needed to draw attention to a post by writing it all in bold, that's against common internet etiquette, as it sounds like shouting...

In the image that mouser posted, he highlighted a section in yellow with a red border.  In that section, there is a checkbox.  Click it.
