I'm a frequent visitor of a website that (like most forums) uses alt+s to post messages. I'm currently on a pc that has Windows 7, and the snipping tool keeps popping up when I press alt+s, instead of posting the message. How do I override this?
Alright, here is what i think happened. There is no standard (included in fresh windows 7) shortcut key to open the snipping tool. So, one of two things happened, either you have some random program on your computer creating shortcuts, in which case i would need a hell of a lot more information to figure that out, or you or someone else that uses the computer set a shortcut in the properties of the tool itself.
Easiest way to check, hit start, type snip, the snipping tool should pop up. right click on the tool, hit properties, click the shortcut tab, and see if there is anything in the "shortcut key" box. if there is, delete it. if not, write a list of everything in your default programs, and we can go from there.
