How to change the default (Windows 7) painting 'Save as type' JPG (from PNG) format when recording using the * only * the keyboard?

This is the 2nd time this same question, the 1st time that I was given an irrelevant answer which was not helpful at all. Please take the time to read and understand what I need to before you answer.

I just need to learn how to change the default PNG to JPG, so every time I save a screenshot using (only) the keyboard, it will already be showing JPG as the "Save as type". I am sure that it requires an edit registry so just point me in the right direction and guide me on how to do it, that's all I need.

To help you understand my dilemma, I take a lot of screenshots and Ctrl + V paste in Paint almost daily. Since my physical disability in my arms causing me pain and discomfort when I use the mouse, I avoid using the mouse I use the shortcuts as much as possible to help reduce the constant pain, I'm still in my right arm when using the mouse. I hope I have explained well enough details.

If it's in the wrong place, please move to a better place.

Thank you



I don't know of any registry value, but you can use the key sequence to "Save as jpg.





The F key may be pressed simultaneously with the ALT key or after him.

You can reduce the number of keys to just ALT plus a digital key by using the following, adapted from one method described HERE.   Setup is much easier with a mouse, but can be done using the keyboard only.  I showed you the controls and mouse shortcuts keyboard to add an icon "" Save as JPG"to the Quick Access toolbar.

Open Paint

Mouse Keyboard equivalent
Click on the file Menu (upper-left) Press ALT + F to open the file Menu
Hover mouse on ' Save as ' to open the list of file types Press V to view the list of file types
Right click on JPG to open the context menu Use the TAB or down arrow key to select JPG and then press SHIFT + F10 to open the context menu
Click "add to quick access toolbar. Press A to "add to the Quick Access toolbar.

At this point, your installation is complete.

With open Paint, press the ALT key .  This will display the keys associated with various actions.  In my case, "" Save as JPG"icon that has been added to the Quick Access toolbar was the fifth icon (after save, undo, redo and print).  So, to "Save as JPG," I would press ALT+5 (even once, you can press 5 either with or after you press the ALT key).

  • How to change the keyboard on Portege M300-101?


    I have a Portege M300-101, and I would like to know if there are instructions online for how to change the keyboard itself. Our unit comes with, I think, a Belgian keyboard installed... and a U.S. keyboard in the box. Are there instructions available for how to move on the keyboards? Also, I guess it's a good idea to switch the keyboard before turning on the laptop for the first time. Do you agree?

    Hello Danis

    Unfortunately there is no public document on this subject. You can try to do it alone, but please don t forget that on this guarantee valid path will be cancelled. Basically, the replacement of keyboard is not well complicated and technicians may need 15 minutes to do.

    In my opinion, you can take a risk and pay for replacement before losing the valid guarantee. The Portege is very expensive and of damage to property, it is very risky to be unsecured.

    Thanks a lot



    Disassembly guides are not for the public, you can download the manual on the official website of Toshiba. I've never seen there other documentation.

    In any case, exchange of keyboard should not be complicated. Just remove the keyboard between the speakers and the keyboard stand. After that, you can lift the keyboard itself but be careful with the keyboard under the keyboard cable. You must remove it also.

    Good luck! :)

    FN - Z does not work. Also, I do not see any symbol associated with this function on the keyboard of my P870.

  • How to change the keyboard shortcuts?


    Keyboard shortcuts as increase and decrease brush size by Cmd + [and command +] (and many others) only works on English American keyboards. The hooks on the Swiss German keyboard are accessible by Alt + 5 for [Alt + 6].

    Cmd + Alt and Alt + Cmd + 5 and 6 do not work as expected.

    On the keyboard of the SG are at the position where you will find on the US keyboard [and] the letters o on the [position and a on the] position.

    (a) where I can change this , the Swiss German, keyboard Cmd + ö, u and Cmd are used as decrease or increase in the size of the brush?

    (b) Solution for future releases:

    • Adobe developers should get rid of verification of the special functions in ASCII code. Isn't is no longer using the ASCII code for special functions.
    • It is for each key on the keyboard as a code Scan, which is independent of the language, region, and keyboard settings.
    • The problem is, that the world, the community of developers is to use keyboards french and put on the page, so they have unfortunately never aware this problem.

    If you check special functions by scan code instead of the ASCII code, this problem will no longer exist. For example, the analysis codes for Cmd + o - US keyboard is Cmd + [-is ALWAYS the same, independent of the keyboard settings or any other language or country.]

    Scan the code = return code independent of the keyboard, it's a kind of 'coordination' of the button pressed

    ASCII or Unicode = depends on keyboard, character on the "xy" scan code position key is returned and it's different for each keyboard layout.

    Please pass on to the developers.

    Cheers & CU,.


    You can create your own shortcuts under Edition > hotkeys (probably in the menu of Photoshop on Mac).

    I have a Norwegian keyboard and have created several shortcuts with letters æ, o, a.

    Shortcuts to increase/decrease brush size is under shortcuts for tools.

  • How to change the keyboard shortcut to navigate through the tabs open in PS and AI CC 2014

    I'd love to put my own keyboard shortcuts to navigate through tabs open in PS and AI 2014 on OS X. I found out that this can be done with ctrl + tab to the PS, but I couldn't manage to make suggestions to the work of the forum of the AI. As said, I would like to define a 'standard' shortcut more like alt + cmd + arrow key at the same time of applications. If this shouldn't be possible, does anyone know a shortcut in AI CC 2014?

    Thank you very much!


    In Illustrator, in my view, you can set these shortcuts in Edit > keyboard shortcuts > Menu commands > funny

    (illustrator can be also command-F6)

    Fact command + ~ (tilde key) work for you in photoshop and illustrator?

    I don't think you want to use alt + cmd + arrow key since it's repositioning/moving objects
