Snapshot Completely Failing to Work

  • The last couple of updates Snapshot hasn't been working correctly. Opera Version currently 62.0.3331.99.

    What happens is after a period of time it just, quite plainly, doesn't work. The Snapshot button doesn't work, the Fullscreen button doesn't work, but the Cancel button certainly works.

    When I go to exit the browser for a split second there's a black box on the desktop and then disappears, like it's the shadow of Snapshot trying to work correctly but it's frozen or something, and the only way to get Snapshot to work again is to completely exit and start Opera back up.

    I've tried taking a screenshot but it's just too fast or it doesn't show up at all even in the PRTSCR Screenshot. It's become so bad I've had to download alternative plugins such as Gyazo to capture pages because I can't just quit the browser every time I need to snapshot something.

  • Latest update 62.0.3331.116 Snapshot continues to not work, a browser reset is not working also to temporarily fix the issue.

    Cache has been cleaned, complete reboot etc. none of these things are fixing Snapshot from breaking.

  • Try Lightshot, works perfectly not only for Opera but within ALL Windows apps. in addition you can save in different formats in folders YOU choose and which Lightshot remembers::

  • @bbildman Thanks. I tried it out for most of the day and really liking it. It's basically Snapshot but taking it to the next level, and I don't have to worry about restarting the browser or it just not working at all. It even works in games which is pretty nice.
