No, I don't want to copy the screenshot of an area to the clipboard. But these users do:

(and maybe others, but these were the most recently active)

Can we merge the useful answers of these into one post?

  • I don't agree with merging all these questions. As stated in the link that andrew.46 shared about when two questions should be merged: When the exact same question gets asked twice and the answers on both are worth preserving, you should merge one into the other. You should only merge if the answers on the question-to-be-merged make perfect sense on the target question. I think that the first and the second questions do not ask for exactly the same thing, so merging would not be appropriate for them. The second and third seem OK for merging though. May 29 at 13:44

    @BeastOfCaerbannog note the very first sentence of the second question is their goal, which is shared by all three users here: to get 'the "old" functionality of taking screenshots of area selections and pasting them into clipboard', and the last sentence is the gripe with the current feature set that both the first and second user have: extra clicks. The second user just hit up on one possible solution and tried to make that work, but Stack Exchange always has had a tradition of looking at the underlying need and not just the XY problem at hand.
