Hi,

Does anybody know why ST (=Snipping Tool) does not remember its last window size and position? I had no problem in Win 10, but ST "Editor" window has a different behaviour in Win 11 (every new capture window is the same size, the default big size which occupies more than half of the screen). In Win 10 after capturing and resizing the window it remains on that size and don't change or revert back to its default size in a new capture mode).

Another Q! Is there a registry trick to assign "Win+PrinScreen" shortcut to ST to save directly in "Capture" folder or automatic save in "Picture" folder (quick save without "Saving dialogue box"). I am aware of ST "AppData" folder (which automatically saves "Captured" windows, regions,... there. Folder path is "C:\Users\X\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.ScreenSketch_8wekyb3d8bbwe\TempState", and saves captures with "{numbers and letters}" name pattern) but I don't want to make a shortcut of it on my "Desktop" and search for my last capture in that folder (I have to press ST close button too! :woozy:).

MS had an update for ST to copy directly in a directory but they didn't add this feature yet, is that right or it has a hidden shortcut I'am unaware of that?!

I don't have this issue with a default Window Snipping size. I have nothing with several options - custom size which you draw from scratch (rectangular or freehand), window snip, or full screen snip.
