Screenshot on Desktop with Vista.

  Rebuilt 21:00 24 Jun 08

I have noticed that when I take any graphic image to the clipboard, it is also placed on the desktop with Vista. This never used to happen with XP.

This is annoying as I have to keep going round to clean up.

Is there a way to customise out this behaviour?

Are you using the snipping tool for capture?

If so after the capture choose save as and then select a destination other than your desktop, eg pictures. In the snipping tool options you can set the tool to remind you to save before closing.

No, I wasn't using that (although I can give it a go).
The main thing I use is ScreenHunter but this behaviour does not seem limited to that. whenever I clip anything graphic to the clipboard it seems to arrive on the desktop.
