Droplr is a great service for sharing
screenshots, documents and other files with people, and has a nice
little desktop app for Windows to make sharing easier. Sadly, it's
been more than a year since the app was last updated.
One of the app's main features allows you to set hotkeys for
common commands like screen grabbing and uploading. Now, if you are
a Droplr user on Windows 8, you
must have spent a considerable amount of time trying to set these
As you can see from the above image of Droplr's hotkey settings,
when you click any of the buttons Win, Ctrl, Shift or Alt, they are
not highlighted in any manner, so there's no way of knowing which
button is selected and which isn't, making it very difficult to set
This issue has been raised on Droplr's Support Center,
but the Droplr team is yet to reply.
Luckily, we found a workaround to this problem. Follow these
- Right-click on the desktop and click Personalize.
- Select the High Contrast White theme from the High Contrast
- Open Droplr's hotkey settings. You should now be able to
distinguish between the button states:
- Set your hotkeys, then revert back to the theme you were using
This is just a workaround rather than a proper solution. We hope
that the Droplr team updates their Windows app soon.
