I am not sure if this has been answered somewhere here but I wasn't able to find the post so I apologize if it's re-ask. The question is that I have two presets configured with the following settings & differences:

  1. Capture & save it to file in PNG format in location "C:\Screenshots\", with no Editor.
  2. Capture & save it to file in PNG format in location "C:\Screenshots\", after done editing with Editor.
The query is that, is there any way that in both these scenarios once the task is done, it opens the folder path "C:\Screenshots\" so I can easily do necessary operation(s) to the files which were outputted before?

I understand what your asking for,However.

There are no settings within SnagIt to accomplish that, that I'm aware of.

I don't think that is even a option in Windows itself. I could be wrong but I know of no such thing.

What you could do if saving multiple screenshots to just the one folder per your example paths, is to open the folder first before doing your sceenshots and minimize it to the taskbar.

When done doing your sceenshots access to that folder is right on the taskbar.
You don't have to look for it that way.

If you use that same folder a lot you could obviously also create a shortcut on your desktop or if you do not want a shortcut on your desktop you could create a pinned shortcut on the taskbar for quicker access to the folder.

If a pinned taskbar shortcut may be of interest here are the steps to make one. It's easy to do.

@Joe Thanks for clarifying :)

@Dubie Thank you so much for the detailed post. Was hoping there was a way built-in to the app. However, used FileJuggler to create a rule that monitors the folder and when there is a file created in the last 1 minute, it automatically execute the command "explorer.exe C:\Screenshots\" hence opening the folder.
