paint program doing something odd

  KEITH 1955 15:45 21 Apr 2019

I have a real strange problem , I save a screen shot with prnt scrn and then use paint app to save it as a jpg in my pictures. If I open the screen shot in the folder it is a proper screen shot.

If I attach it to an email and then check my sent emails box I discover it has been sent with my toolbar short cuts across the top of the screen shot so the sent attachment actually looks like my browsers web page in use.

More worrying if I click on the short cuts shown on the screen shot they work so obviously my screen shots are a security risk.

Instead of Print Screen use the snipping tool to select part of the screen instead of the whole desktop.

if I click on the short cuts shown on the screen shot they work

I tried but was unable to recreate that problem with a screenshot.jpg

Hi lotvic , when I clicked the screen shot that was uploaded ready to send in the email it showed the toolbar as I described but when I sent it to myself and opened it , it did not show the tool bar on the opened attachment , a strange one I know but I think panic over , I thought others were get sent my toolbar on the email but as you pointed out , you could not make it happen.

Your jpg files are associated with your web browser. In other words change the default program to something else for example the Photos App on Windows 10.
