ScreenshotCaptor Hanging for a long time
« on: November 19, 2021, 12:40 PM »
Hello everyone
Hope you have a good weekend/week

I've been using ScreenshotCaptor for quite a while with no problems,
I think it is one of the best Screenshot programs available.

However, recently after Windows 10 upgraded itself to Windows 11

ScreenshotCaptor began to slow down
when wanting to take a screen shot after I'd taken one,
it has progressively got worse, now I can wait upto a minute with the blue circle spinning and the whole screen locked.
I have tried a few things like
Un-installing ScreenshotCaptor and re-installing it, still the same

closing all other programs with only the internet and ScreenshotCaptor working, made no difference.
cleaning the pc and revitalising the memory, made no difference either.
Now I am at a loss of what I can do to stop this unbearable waiting.
Any ideas how I can stop this?

I have my own MotoGP website and often use ScreenshotCaptor to take action photos, but I can't get the shot I want with this delay.
It is very frustrating.
HELP Please!!!

or Maybe it's time to look for another program?

There are a couple of things that can slow down SC:
  • Having hundreds and hundreds of screenshots in the current screenshot directory
  • When SC tried to grab the url when making a capture from a web browser; try going into capture options and disabling the capture of url address
