Stop OneDrive taking over Print Screen key

Q. How can I stop OneDrive hijacking my Print Screen key?

A. OneDrive has a lot of great features however one thing it does is hijack the print screen key even if you are using it for other applications such as Snag It. To fix this I found you need to perform the following:

  1. Open OneDrive Settings
  2. Select the Auto Save tab
  3. Uncheck the Automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive
  4. Click OK
  5. You should now be able to use Print Screen with other applications
