OneDrive Capture Tool and Quick Share Features
OneDrive Capture(Snipping) Tool
- Similar to Snipping Tool, Snaggit, OneNote, Puush, Gyazo except automatically uploads image to a special folder on OneDrive similar to how phone pictures go to "Camera Roll", these pictures would go into a "Screenshots" folder.
- Different keyboard shortcuts for full screen screenshot, focused window screenshot, select your area screenshot
- Depending on the key combination, say if you hold shift during the key combination, it will determine whether a dialog will pop up asking what you want to do. For example Ctrl + 4 would give you a select-area screenshot and AUTOMATICALLY save the OneDrive share link to your clipboard whereas Ctrl + Shift + 4 would make a dialog box show up with different options.
- Services like Puush and Gyazo have been very popular nowadays with quick sharing of screen capture.
Quick Share Features
- Dedicated folder called "Quick Share" with global permission of "Anyone with link can view"
- When you right click on ANY file on Windows and click the button "Super Duper Magic Share", it will automatically upload the file to OneDrive and add a link to it to your clipboard.
Would be neat if for both these features that it can (optionally) push a notification to your phone so when you activate the notification it goes straight to that picture. I would find this useful when I want to send a friend a picture to a friend and since I can't text from my PC. I need to jump through hoops to get a copy or type out a long link to him. So it's not just pushing a link to your clipboard but it's pushing a link to your phone. I figure pushing links would also be easier than using Azure Mobile Services to send SMS.
We’re starting to roll out our new screenshot feature. We have a dedicated screenshots folder and you can easily sync them across all your devices. The rollout will happen with updates to the sync client and we’ll ramp it up to 100% over the next couple of weeks.
Take a look at the announcement in the link below and keep the suggestions coming!
I set this up successfully on my Win7 desktop, but can't see the AutoSave tab on my Win8.1 Surface Pro3, so it really doesn't help much. I need it on all computers, especially the Surface. I was so excited when I found it on my desktop that I uninstalled DropBox from all my computers, since the only thing I still used it for was autosaving screenshots.
Now, I guess I have to re-install it on my Surface until I can figure out why I the OneDrive application is different on every device.

Well? This was posted a while ago and no updates on this. Make it like Dropbox, ask the user if he wants to automatically upload the screenshots to OneDrive. Also, if you could make the viewing page high res friendly it'd be great. Multiple monitors and high res screens are pretty common nowadays.
Thanks for working on this, it is a nice utility and a big help!
