thb65 1 Reputation point

I am using windows 10 Photos app as my default viewer

Issue: i use Print Screen desktop a lot and then like to print out the screenprint using Photos app.

The Print Fit default setting is: Fill Page.... but I need always Shrink to fit for the screendumps.

Is there a way to change the default setting into Shrink to fit ?

    Hi. Thank you for your question and reaching out.

    Please try shutting down Snagit fully so that it is not running at all. Open your task manager (ctrl + alt + delete) and select the Processes tab. Verify that SnagPriv.exe, Snag32.exe, and SnagEditor.exe are not currently operating.

    Please proceed as follows:
    -to open the Run Window, press the R key while holding down the Windows key on your keyboard. To launch the Registry Editor, type regedit and click OK.

    -browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\Snagit\13\and Find ShrinkToFitNewDocuments and change that to 0
    Check to see if it worked by reopening Snagit.
