Alt+Tab after capture prevents any of the context menu functions from running.


To replicate the issue, click prnt+scrn and then choose any of the context menu options. Right after clicking on them, press "alt+tab" to switch to a different application. Notice that the selected option doesn't run.


Windows 10 2004 with Greenshot v. 1.2.10 Build 6

I just tried and cannot reproduce this either, sorry.
I don’t know whether this behavior might be caused by background task resource restrictions?

It’s with any selection I make – “Copy to Clipboard” is one example. One thing I do notice, if I wait 1-2s after selecting an option it sends the toast notification saying “Exported: Copy to Clipboard”, but if I alt-tab immediately the toast notification doesn’t come through and nothing is in my clipboard.

I also think my computer might be a bit broken… So if you can’t replicate it, probably PEBCAK on my end.

I can’t reproduce this, maybe you can be bit more clear of what selection you make?
