  2. PrintScreen & Snipping tool are not working

    Neither my PrintScreen or my Snipping tool are working. When I use the Snipping Tool I get a black screen. Whenever I use the PrintScreen and paste into Paint I get a black screen. I'm on Win10 and fully up to date.

  3. Windows 10: disable hotkeys for Snipping Tool?

    The Windows 10 Snipping Tool has reserved some keyboard shortcuts. I wish to use them with another program.

    Is there a way to release these? Or else disable the Snipping Tool completely?

    The tool I wish to use instead is Greenshot, which I've been using for years in Windows (XP, 7, 8, 8.1). Here is the message Greenshot displays on install:

    ---------------------------

    Warning

    ---------------------------

    The hotkey(s) "PrintScreen, Alt + PrintScreen, Ctrl + PrintScreen" could not be registered. This problem is probably caused by another tool claiming usage of the same hotkey(s)! You could either change your hotkey settings or deactivate/change the software
    making use of the hotkey(s).
    All Greenshot features still work directly from the tray icon context menu without hotkeys.

    ---------------------------

    Abort Retry Ignore

    ---------------------------

    I found the registry entries, but I'm not sure what to edit to disable the Snipping Tool.
