Holy crap. Everything breaks. Now a simple "print screen" turns into a VIDEO CAPTURE - so I can no longer just use my PRINT SCREEN button like I do 50 TIMES A DAY? WHY???  And HOW do I do  a SUPER SIMPLE PRINT SCREEN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?\

Hello ejaimes;

You may have your default set to Video.  I had to change mine to Image

Open the Capture dialog box. Under the Capture button it should say "Print Screen." If it does left click on it and then key in what you want to be the HotKey. For example I once used Ctrl+C as my capture HotKey. So just hold down the Ctrl key and press the c key once. Then the capture HotKey will become Ctrl+C. I liked that one because I could do it with just my left hand leaving my right hand on the mouse. This could interfere with using the keypad Ctrl+C to do copying of website content, etc. if you use that key combination for that purpose. If that is a problem select some other alpha key like Q which generally will not have another HotKey assignment. You could also use Alt+C which generally will not be assigned to anything by another program. Have a good day!
