anyway to take a screenshot?

Post by InGearX » 04 Jan 2023, 03:42

I have a 2x2 slides displaying across 3 monitors

from a library of 500k pictures

when I see some picture I'd like to reference later - is there anyway I can setup my Win 10 to take a screenshot?

I use ShareX - so I need to press a hot key - but that exits the screensaver

hmmm maybe some voice activated way via Amazon Alexa for PC or hmm any ideas?

thank you ...

In the most recent version you can check the [ Exit only on [Esc] key, not on any other ] box in the screensaver settings, [ Viewer ] tab, [ Actions ] section to prevent Endless Slideshow Screensaver from existing on any key press except for the [ Esc ] key.

Plus, Endless Slideshow Screensaver Pro offers other ways to accomplish your task. You can copy all currently shown images into a selected folder on [ X ] key, for example. Or copy file names of all currently shown pictures to the Windows Clipboard on [ C ] key. You can even run a custom command or batch script with file names of all currently shown pictures on keys [ 1 ] - [ 5 ].

awesome
thank you
I'm glad I asked

PS UPDATE: Hmm ShareX fails to take a screenshot when screensaver is running

I guess Windows or Endless Slideshow Screensaver doesn't let the keys pass through?

works OK when I test in "Preview" mode

hmmm any ideas?

thank you

UPDATE 2: Looks like only Win native Print Screen button worked - Ditto (clipboard manager) registered two screenshots - one of all 3 monitors and another for the main monitor or for where the mouse is

but they were not saved to files - which is not ideal

only to clipboard

I had to go to run>cmd: "mspaint.exe" and paste them there

Endless Slideshow Screensaver does not prevent any keys from working. That must be exclusively ShareX's problem.
