Screen Clipping Shortcut In OneNote Not Working
This Windows + S combination to clip was working perfectly till Windows 8. But when I upgraded to Windows 8.1, then the same keyword combination brings up the search experience, so I don’t get the Screen Clipping options. In other words, Screen Clipping hot keys are not working as I upgraded to Windows 8.1, irrespective of the Office iteration I’m using.
Assign Different Hot Keys For Screen Clipping
To fix this issue, we can easily assign different hot keys to OneNote functionality using Registry Editor, since modifying system files to alter Windows + S might be risky. So, here is how to assign different hot keys to get screen clipping in Office:
1. Press Windows Key + R combination, type put Regedit in Run dialog box and hit Enter to open the Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to the following location:
We’ve assumed that you’re using Office 2013, hence 15.0 has been mentioned. If you’re using Office 2010, replace it with 14.0. If you’re using Office 2007, replace it with 12.0.
3. In the right pane of this location, create a new DWORD using Right click -> New -> DWORD 64bit Value (depends on your OS is 32bit or 64bit). Name the newly created DWORD as ScreenClippingShortcutKey, double click on the same DWORD to modify it:
4. Put the Value data equals to 41, it will set the hot keys to Windows Key + A. If you want to set any other hot key than these, see below list. Make sure you don’t use those hot keys Value data which are already assigned inWindows by shortcut. Click OK after inputting desired Value data. Close the Registry Editor and reboot to get results.
Hope that helps!
