I am trying to get Windows 7 sniping tool to run when I hit my PRINTSCREEN keyboard button with AUTOHOTKEY.
I have been unsuccessful so far though. Here is what I have for the AutoHotKey script.
I have tried this
And all those give me an error that basically says it cannot find the file, however the file path seems to be correct, I can copy paste it into a window and it opens the snipping tool, any ideas why it will not work?
Here is the full code to my AHK file...
