"Hotkey 'Ctrl+PrintScreen' used by another application" error displays even when I change my hotkey combination


I just installed the latest/greatest of CloudShot (

I immediately went in to configure my settings and everything worked fine until I clicked OK and I was presented with that error modal.

I go back into settings and the Shot Hotkey textbox is now blank. However, if I do use the shortcut I previously entered in there, it works for me.

I think you have another capture application and this hotkey "Ctrl+PrintScreen" already used. You can just change hotkey in CloudShot or in another application.
It is not possible to use same hotkey in different applications.

I found bug that you talked about. I have fixed it and soon I will update CloudShot.
