#7726 new enhancement

Allow user defined path for screenshots

Description

It would be nice if we could allow the user to select a path where the screenshots he made are stored. Currently under Win Vista for example the screenshots would go to a "Virutal Storage" folder. That is since they are written to the cwd by default, which is by default with our Win installer: "C:\Program Files\" . Now Vista does not allow a user without admin rights to write to that folder, so it create a fake folder for write access.

Just for the logs: I got this request via mail, so before it's lost I created an item on our feature requests tracker.

"Virtual Storage" of course, as pointed out by DrMcCoy.

The possibility to specify the screenshot save directory in the ini file was implemented in commit e96c057. The config key to use is screenshotpath (and this is documented in the README).

I wasn't sure about the need to expose this in the GUI at the time so I didn't do it. Thus I am keeping this request open as it is not fully implemented.
