切身感受而已,软件体验确实要加强,简直无法直视,不停地一个提示接着一个提示的确不合适。趁作者离线说说,在线其实我也不好意思说。

I think I know what your talking about.

During the initial setup SavePictureAs has a lot of screens to dismiss.

I have thought about that and plan on reducing the screens and still present the same information.

I have been working on other improvements to SavePictureAs version 10.7 and have it almost ready to release.

I will consider reducing the amount of setup screens with version 10.8. The good news is that you only have to see those screens 1 time then SavePictureAs sits quietly in the system tray.

thanks for your interest in SavePictureAs.

SavePictureAs works with over 25 browsers and all versions of windows since WinXP, but I have not been able to figure out how to get SavePictureAs to work with Microsoft Edge.

Currently, after the user presses their chosen hotkey SavePictureAs uses the right click menu to select Save Picture. This is being done by SavePictureAs sending shortcut keys while the right click menu is open, for instance IE is the letter s and FireFox is the letter v.

Shortcut keys do not work with the right click menu for Microsoft Edge.

I can't just simply arrow down to Save Picture because Save Picture is sometimes the 1st menu option, some times the 4th menu option and some times the 5th menu option.

I need suggestions on how to select Save Picture from the right click menu on Microsoft Edge.

thanks in advance for any suggestions.
