I just got to the bottom of this problem…
I was running Greenshot from startup (Greenshot is a nice OSS screen capture tool), and I was having this issue where from time to time the “print” wouldn’t work.
When running Greenshot, pressing the Print key allows you to select a region of the screen for a cropped screen shot.
After some tinkering, the issue is that when Greenshot is running w/o admin rights, it won’t be able to respond when my focus is on an application that is running WITH admin rights.
As long as the app I have focus on is using regular level permissions, or greenshot is running with elevated premissions, all is well.
I’m simply running it with elevated permissions now and have no issues.
Thanks for the tip Chris! Just what I was looking for.
Thanks for the tip, was a problem for me with Visual Studio running in Administrator mode.
Works great now 🙂
How do you run GreenShot with elevated permissions when Greenshot is set to load when Windows starts?
THANKS fixed me.
You’re welcome 🙂
Good one Chris.. This has been bugging me for months and a quick google turned up this solution. Thanks.
