I usually use the snipping tool but would like to try the Firefox one but I see there are several of them. Which one do you use, Victor?

Thanks,

Gill

So it is a right-click context menu just for the Firefox application, that only operates within the Firefox browser window, so cannot take screenshots of anything else.

The general purpose screenshot tools remain as Snip & Sketch or the Snipping Tool.

My apologies. I have been used to doing it for a long time. Just did a check it only happens when I am on Firefox.

There have been times when I open Ancestry looking at BMD and the reference is transcribed. I use the screen shot to make copy like this for a marriage

It may be that your PC supplier has installed some snipping application or customised the right-click menu, but that is not standard default Windows 10 behaviour.

I have never used the snip tool mentioned. I just do a right click and a menu opens. At the bottom of the list it says 'take a screen shot' I mark the area I want to take then prompt copy and open it up in my photo software where I can make any adjustment I want

I am using Windows 10

Yes, there is a new one with Windows 10 that you are offered when opening Snipping Tool

In Windows 10, a handy quick way of getting a screen grab with Snip and Sketch is to press Windows+Shift+S simultaneously (Windows key is the one between Ctrl and Alt to the left of the space bar) - you can then draw around your snip area you want to capture. This is copied to the clipboard - you are notified of this - and you can paste the clip to any application using Ctrl+V (or Edit>Paste)

Windows, Shift and S are handily close together and can be done with one hand.

By default just drag a square, but there are other options to create a freeform shape or grab a window or full screen - see the small menu that opens at the top of the screen.

If you are on Windows 7 or above Snipping Tool is part of the standard Windows operating system.

If you click on the Start button and start typing snip you will see the Tool offered as something you can click on.

Alternately, look in the Program folder 'Windows Accessories'

What if anything can I do to correct the existing incorrect files.

Subject: Re: [family-historian] Time set 00:00 on some Media Files

 

Hello Mike,

Sorry to be a pain but, I changed the date column but all the files with time 00:00 are still unchanged. I assume it will only work on future files.

What if anything can I do to correct the existing incorrect files.

Any ideas?

Ah! I’ve spotted what it is.

The column heading is Date which is not necessarily any of the Properties dates Created, Modified, Accessed.

It can be the Date Taken saved in the JPG data if that exists.

In the Properties check the Details tab and Date Taken is probably 09/01/2019 00:00

 

To avoid being fooled again, change the File Explorer column to use Date Modified instead.

It looks like there are three similarly named files involved but each with different dates & sizes.

1)         Baptism 1831 Kain Patrick 1831.jpg         06/07/2020 11:29       228 KB         shown in Dump01 and Dump03

2)         Baptism 1831 Kain Patrick 1831a.jpg       09/01/2019 00:00     1536 KB         ditto

 

3)         Baptism 1831 Kain Patrick 1831a.jpg       06/07/2020 11:34     1573 KB         shown in Dump02

Is this 3rd file in exactly the same path as the first two?

It has a similar date to 1) and a similar size to 2) but not identical.

Hello Mike,

The screen shots were sent to you in the incorrect format apparently which is why you haven't got them.

Trying again. Got to use the Snipping Tool.

Unfortunately, you forgot to insert/add the screenshots.

It should not matter whether JPG or JPEG but where are you seeing JPEG?

If the file you investigated has a different date-time and different size then it can’t be the same file.

Hello Mike,

Unusual I thought was an understatement. 

You are right, using the media tab on the Property Box for an Individual.

They are JPG. But, having said that in the second picture the one that gave the missing time is a JPEG file.

I wouldn't have thought that would make a difference.

Looking at the Properties of the file it is a JPG file with all three dates showing correctly.

Changing the File Explorer listing the file in question just below the centre of the screen is now Baptism 1831 Kain Patrick 1831a.jpg 09/01/2019 00:00 and the size is much larger at 1,536KB.

Hope that helps?

I've managed to do what I wanted to do but the messages of S&S on the screen after selecting an area I don't understand their meaning.

No instructions?

Yes, there is a new one with Windows 10 that you are offered when opening Snipping Tool

In Windows 10, a handy quick way of getting a screen grab with Snip and Sketch is to press Windows+Shift+S simultaneously (Windows key is the one between Ctrl and Alt to the left of the space bar) - you can then draw around your snip area you want to capture. This is copied to the clipboard - you are notified of this - and you can paste the clip to any application using Ctrl+V (or Edit>Paste)

Windows, Shift and S are handily close together and can be done with one hand.

By default just drag a square, but there are other options to create a freeform shape or grab a window or full screen - see the small menu that opens at the top of the screen.

 

Best Wishes,

If you are on Windows 7 or above Snipping Tool is part of the standard Windows operating system.

If you click on the Start button and start typing snip you will see the Tool offered as something you can click on.

Alternately, look in the Program folder 'Windows Accessories'

OK, so it should say that the Snip has been saved to the clipboard.
You can immediately click on that message to open S&S and you can add mark ups - use a highlighter or a pen to add lines etc. 
Alternately, it is stored in the computers clipboard (it gets overwritten if you do a new one) that is available to paste without any mark ups, into applications such as an email or Microsoft Word - where you just press Ctrl+V or use Paste icons to add it.
This MS video is handy to show all that in action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1p2kgd-Rsc
