Guide for Setting Up Sharex

ShareX is, and has always been the best screenshot software. If you use Lightshot, you're a nerd.

Step 1

Download ShareX here.

Step 2

Go to "Destination Settings"

Step 3

Select "Imgur" at the top. For account type, if you have an Imgur account you can log in here as shown in the screenshot but it's easier to just keep it as "Anonymous". Also make sure that "Use direct link" is checked. You can close this window afterwards.

Step 4

  • Go to "After capture tasks" and deselect all the options except one  of the following (the option you pick is down to personal preference)



    "Upload image to host" (This is recommended, and will simply upload the image straight away)
  • "Open in image editor" (This is what I use)
  • "Show quick task menu"
  • "Show after capture menu"

[*]Go to "After upload tasks" and deselect all the options except "Copy URL to clipboard"

[*]Go to "Destinations" -> "Image uploader" and select "Imgur"

Usage

To take a screenshot, press the PrntScrn key on your keyboard, and select the area you want to capture. The URL of the image will be copied automatically into the correct format to be easily pasted into the MDT.

If you're using the image editor, you press the button shown below to upload the image.
