Default Print screen?

I have alot of images to edit rom bitmap to jpeg an I dont wana use a 3rd person program to do this in future. (since i got enough of this crap on my pc)

so anyone know if there a way to change the way windows saves print screens to bitmap, to jpeg format?

are you saying you are using MS paint? what program are you using to save?

you are using prt-scrn...then what? MS paint...then save?

in any event, I just looked at ms paint and it saves as, bmp, gif, jpg, tif, png...
so not sure what you are asking

when you press print screen and copy and paste it somewhere the image is bitmap. I wana find the windows code for this, and edit it so when I paste a print screen its jpeg by default.

There is no way to change that. That is hard coded into the OS. When you paste it jsut make sure you change yoru default save method. That is all you can do.
