How to open GIMP using F1 key

Marcel Valz
Dear users,

3 of our users have GIMP 2.8.14 installed on their systems: HP Laptops with Win 7.

With the app closed, if they press the F1 key it opens the selection tool of GIMP and they can select and paste whatever captured in Outlook, Word, etc.

1 of the users got a new laptop with Win 10, after completing setup and installing the current version of GIMP - I cannot find where or how to map the F1 key to perform this function. Is that still available with Win 10?

I already disabled the F1 = Win Help.

Any help would be appreciated,

This is either a very custom GIMP (and I have no idea who'd have  done
this), or a totally different application. Maybe the Windows snipping tool?

How do you know it's GIMP?

And what does "whatever captured" mean?

That's got nothing to do with GIMP, and probably nothing to do with Windows
either - I'm guessing that the old laptops default to having the F-keys
mapped to media keys (and you need to press Fn+-F1 to actually get F1), and
have HP's driver installed which interprets those media keys to run
different programs. You might be able to do the same on the new laptops by
changing the setting in BIOS and installing HP's hotkey program.

I am familiar with the windows snipping tool, and have the user using this as an
alternative until I can figure out how/if the F1 key shortcut can be enabled
with GIMP and Win 10.

Thanks to both of you for the replies.

Alex > when F1 is pressed the selection tool of GIMP is opened, and once a

GIMP icon in the taskbar.
By "whatever captured" I am referring to the use of the selection tool. Once a
selection is made, everything within the selection is captured, and the GIMP
options become available to edit, save as specific file type, etc.

Hi Alex and Michael,

Turns out I was completely off. The program is called Gadwin Printscreen. As I
went through our ticket history for the client, found out it was initially
believed GIMP was the tool, but it was Gadwin working with GIMP and with some
customization. Gadwin enables a selection tool by pressing F1 and then the
captured image can be edited with GIMP.

Please excuse the confusion and thanks for replying.
