Disable save notifications

How can I completely disable Snagit notifications every time I take a screenshot? They appear on the screen for ~7 seconds, which is pretty annoying if I'm capturing screenshots of a demonstration and I might capture two screenshots a couple of seconds apart. I have no use for the notification at all, but I can't find an option to disable it. Sometimes I'm sharing my screen and I see something odd in a demo I'd like to capture, but with the notifications I'm announcing to anyone watching my WebEx that I've captured it.

What I really want to do is just capture a screenshot and save it as PNG in a directory I choose. No snagitproj, no opening in the excruciatingly slow Snagit editor, no notifications. When I want to review or edit a screenshot, I'll open it, but otherwise I'd just like a simple PNG.

Is that possible? I really miss FastStone Capture :)

Here's an image I created for SnagIt 12, the procedure works for other versions .It will work for saving  png's to a folder.
It's best to use a Hot Key to trigger the captures.



Notifications are something you disable in preferences.
SnagIt 12 featured again

Hi Joe,

Thanks (I think) but since your screenshots are from Windows, I had to do a bunch of mental conversions to apply to my Mac. I turned off all visible "do not bring up the Snagit screen after each screenshot and that worked UNTIL I did a "repeat last screenshot" and that brought up the Snagit screen. Can you give me a hint how to turn that one off and if you do not know the Mac version to do that can anyone else help me here?

Thanks

Reply part 2, well Joe's suggestion didn't work at all after all. Sorry Joe, it may be an issue between the Mac and PC capabilities.

And otherwise I really really really agree with Barry. I can't tell you how Snagit gets in my way and does not help because it always wants to help. There are often times when I need to get a whole bunch of screenshots done and then deal with them. As it stands, Snagit cannot do that. It always comes up to "HELP." Well no, it isn't at that point. I completely agree with Barry that at some point I THEN want Snagit to be brought forward, show me my latest collection of screenshots and let me deal with them then.
THAT would be helpful.

Thanks Barry,

Sorry guys, I'm not how I got caught up in the MAC forum and responded. I probably clicked on it accidentally.
I try to stay clear because I have no MAC experience to draw from

Hi,

In macOS you can disable notifications for any application in the Notifications section in System Preferences. Just set the alert style to None for Snagit and SnagitHelper. I hope this helps!
