Windows 10/11
December 29, 2021 ~ Version 13.7.0 Pre-release

• Added “Main window” tab to “Application settings” window and moved related settings from main window right click menu to there
• Added “Thumbnail click action” option to “Main window” tab:
- Default
- Select (double click opens the file)
- Open image viewer
- Open file
- Open folder
- Open URL
- Edit image
• For screen recordings, get window info to be able to use in file naming and history tags, so that way it is now easier to search for videos in history window
• Added “Sub folder pattern for window” option to “Application settings -> Paths”, so that way %pn (process name) and %t (window title) formats can be used for screenshots folder
• Added “Auto copy image to clipboard” option to image editor
• System admins can now configure certain ShareX settings via registry. These settings should reside in either HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ShareX key or • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ShareX key. Please note HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE has priority over HKEY_CURRENT_USER while reading the settings.
- DisableUpdateCheck (REG_DWORD) registry value disables update checks
- DisableUpload (REG_DWORD) registry value disables uploads application wide (by @Erik3003)
- PersonalPath (REG_SZ) registry value overrides personal path of ShareX, which is by default “Documents\ShareX” folder
• Added “Borderless window” tool. Some games such as Minecraft don’t let you take screenshots (screenshots looks black) while running in exclusive fullscreen mode and there is no in-game setting for fullscreen borderless too. Therefore, we wrote this tool to let us make the game fullscreen borderless and allow us to take screenshots from it
• Support drag n drop file to “Video converter” window
• Added region capture click action for “Capture last region”
• Added “Stop screen recording” hotkey
• Added “Toggle tray menu” hotkey
• Color picker dialog now remembers color palette mode selection
• Swapped move/resize hotkeys behavior in region capture so arrow keys now move shapes instead of resizing them
• Removed debug, donate, twitter, discord and about buttons from tray menu to keep it more compact
• Added default printer override option (by @tajetaje
• Added “Show stats” button to history window
• Added “Process names” to history stats, which let you see from which applications you took your screenshots most
• Visual improvements in “Image history” window
• Added “Replace color” image effect
• In “Application settings” window, moved “Retry” tab contents to “Upload” tab, and moved “Results” tab contents to “Clipboard formats” tab
• Added external site dropdown menu for OCR window (by @IAmVisco)
• Added “Append file name to URL” option for ownCloud / Nextcloud (by @EmilyLove26)
• GitHub releases assets now include “.sha256” checksum files for setup and portable
• Hotkey descriptions in “Hotkey settings” now have task-specific icons. Same for task dropdown in hotkey task settings.
• YouTube video title, description and visibility can now be set before upload through new “Video options” dialog
• Text uploads using ShareX browser extension now respects file naming settings

Hi,
I'm liking OBS studio more for full screen stuff seeing it has a pause/ resume hotkey option and shareX does not.
Recording movies and tv series this comes in mighty handy :cool:

Lol! Snagit's got more powerful tools and superior quality but, it's slow as molasses in January!
ShareX and others are great for quick stuff! :wink:

Serious? I'm surprised. I've been using 2022 and it runs great. However, I've seen a lot of users complaining of issues with upgrade instead of clean install.

I don't have Snagit load a Startup, I only load it when I've got a special project to work on.
However, I've seen a lot of users complaining of issues with upgrade instead of clean install.
Yup! Screen flashing when screen recording! :(

Odd! Snagit 2022 seems to work flawlessly on W10, but, some glitches on W11, (unless it's something with my laptop!) :unsure:

Hi,
I haven't noticed and screen flashing on either sharex for wide screen or obs studios for full screen capturing
I do lots of movies an also tv series and both work just fine.
I use 10 usually but have done a few on 11 to.

I change default file types to mp4 and x264 so file sizes are stupid large.
