- For screen recordings, get window information to use in file names and history tags, so it’s now easier to search for videos in the history window.
- Added option “Subfolder template for window” to “Application settings -> Paths”, so that the formats% pn (process name) and% t (window title) can be used for screenshots folder
- Added option “Automatically copy image to clipboard” to image editor
- System administrators can now configure some ShareX settings through the registry. These settings must reside in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE ShareX or HKEY_CURRENT_USER SOFTWARE ShareX key. Please note that HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE takes precedence over HKEY_CURRENT_USER when reading parameters.
- The DisableUpdateCheck (REG_DWORD) registry value disables update checks
- The DisableUpload (REG_DWORD) registry value disables application-wide downloads (by @ Erik3003)
- The PersonalPath registry value (REG_SZ) overrides the ShareX personal path, which defaults to the “Documents ShareX” folder.
- Added the “Borderless window” tool. Some games such as Minecraft do not allow you to take screenshots (screenshots appear black) when running in exclusive fullscreen mode and there is also no in-game setting for full screen without border. Therefore, we have written this tool to allow us to make the game borderless in full screen and allow us to take screenshots of it.
