  3. can't take screenshots

    Even I face this problem today on my Nokia lumia 920 , i searched and got suggestion which worked for some people that delete the screenshot folder and then take the screenshot so that it will create again the screenshot folder.

    Iam also going to try the same.

    please reply if this works...

    Thanks.

    Taking screenshots

    Taking screenshot at windows 10

    We found some steps to resolve this issue, in which, we need to edit few things on the registry. Kindly follow the steps below and see if it helps:

    • Press Windows Key + R, type Regedt32.exe and click
      OK.
    • Navigate to the location listed below:
      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
    • In the right side, look for ScreenshotIndex, with the key type
      DWORD (REG_DWORD). If you do not see this item on this location, then this is the reason why your screenshot is not being saved under Screenshot Folders. With this being said, you need to create a new registry key. Follow the steps provided
      below:
      • Do a right-click > New > DWORD Value. Make sure to name it as ScreenshotIndex.
      • Double-click on the newly made registry key and edit the values as follows:
        • Base - Decimal
        • Value data - 695
      • Click OK.
    • Now we need to make sure that this newly created registry key DWORD is pointed out to your user profile settings. We need to move to a different location in the left side. Kindly navigate to the location provided below in the left panel:
      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
    • On this location, look for the item named {B7BEDE81-DF94-4682-A7D8-57A52620B86F} with the key type
      expandable string (REG_EXPAND_SZ). If you don't see it, you can create a new key, same as the process we have created with ScreenshotIndex. Just make sure that you select expandable string.
    • Double-click on the registry key, make sure that the Value data is in the correct user path. Check the example below:
      • %USERPROFILE%\Pictures\Screenshots
    • Click OK.

    After doing the steps provided, you can close the Registry Editor and reboot your computer. After restarting your computer, you can start doing a screenshot and it should be saved to the folder you have set in the registry keys. If they are already in there,
    then this means that the issue is resolved.
