Thanks for bumping me to review the latest screen capture add-ons, this one, although slow, is great, ScreenGrab with online upload.
Copy the Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 code and save as snip.reg to your desktop. Right click the snip.reg and edit the code to match your path/setup. Right click the snip.reg file and Merge. Copy the snip.htm code and save as snip.htm and place it in the path/folder, matching what you edited in the Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 snip.reg code. Restart IE

Although I don't use the command bar, you can also add it to that as well.

If Brink approves, maybe he could make a tutorial on it. I'm lousy at explaining something.

Sorry! I can't believe I missed it!

Moved it from Program Files to Program Files\Common Files and it works like a champ. BTW, your tutorial was fine from the beginning.

You wouldn't happen to also know how to add it for Firefox 8, would you?

I pinned the Snipping Tool to the Start Menu.

Wow, it's been quite a few years since I worked with Firefox. I used to be big on customizing Firefox and hacked a few extensions together but it's been so long ago. On XP partition, I still have a very customized Firefox 1.5.0.12, lol. You could do just about anything with it back then. I even had clocks in the Titlebar, toolbar, statusbar and Tools menu, app buttons on toolbars etc. Not useful for anything but it was fun trying out different things just to see if they would work or not. I do remember that some/most required a combo of XUL, Js and CSS for styling as well as an install manifest. At one time there was an extension called UserChrome.js which could be used for changing alot of things. Another helpful extension was a customized Chrome Edit which contained tabs for XUL and UserChromeJs edits. All my old posts on MozForums were lost during the big server crash of '07. Have you tried the External Applications button extension?
