How not to have a popup of explorer window after screenshot
« on: November 24, 2021, 04:34 PM »
A while ago I noticed that each time after taking a screenshot not only the expected popup for instructions (print/save) came up but subsequently also windows explorer started with focus on the folder with the saved image.
I am not aware of having made any changes and don't remember this being the case before but can't figure out how to prevent that from happening. There is probably a setting somewhere to deal with that but I am too stupid to find it. :huh:

Are you doing a 'Save As'? It does that by default with the save as option.

It only happens by default after a "Save As.." action.  You can disable it here:

Mouser, thanks for your info - that indeed is the setting I did not see.  :)
