Stop SnagIt from changing window focus during / after picture upload?

  • Question
  • Updated 1 week ago
Here is an example of what I'm talking about:
Snagit screen capture
https://www.screencast.com/t/rqW1iOHKP

I do a capture+upload and am typing for example in Skype to explain and link to the picture I just took, but the capture upload progress window will take focus away from the Skype window and then once the upload finishes again SnagIt takes focus away from the window I'm on and puts it back to the window I captured.

This is a bit annoying, is there any way to change this behavior (and/or remove the upload progress bar completely)

Damn, no answer, but I have encountered the same Snagit focus stealing behaviour when using Snipping Tool every day. I've been all through Snagit's menus and there's nothing there that I can see to prevent it stealing focus. I love Snagit, but you're right, this is a bit annoying and I'm sure tempted to uninstall it until I need it.

Hi there

From the main SnagIt Capture window, try clicking File > Capture Preferences... > Capture tab. Then clear the option labeled Open screenshots copied from system tools.



Cheers... Rick :)

Awesome thanks Rick. The problem was that I was trying to locate this preference in Snagit Editor, which is what kept changing focus. Any chance of the preference being added to Snagit Editor?
