With Windows Snipping Tool i'm able to select an area in my screen and save the image. Is it possible to set a default selection-size?

I'm trying to auto-screenshot a specific area of my screen and save the image.

  • Have you tried the windows macro recorders? May be they will be able to do the job. Post your efforts to avoid "down" votes – Prasanna Aug 26 '14 at 7:12
  • @Prasanna I used "freelabs Macro Recorder" and it has several major issues. Mouse over flash video is slow & it doesn't work with keyboard macros (opening start menu). I'm not liking this. Now I'm suggesting the AHK-route but I don't know the scripts. – user176540 Aug 26 '14 at 11:15
  • After trying out Jitbit Macro Recorder the problems we're solved (flash/keyboard), but I don't seem to like this very much. I would prefer a scripting language route such as AHK but I don't know the scripts for my task. – user176540 Aug 26 '14 at 11:28

I don't believe it is possible with the native snipping tool (add this to the list of things I wish it could do, like print directly.) You may want to look into third party options like PicPick.

  • I want to avoid specific-alternatives as i'm trying to find universal routes to EVERYTHING. AHK seems to makes sense for my taste, but I don't know any snipping tool scripts. – user176540 Aug 26 '14 at 11:29
