    Default Sudden conflict of keyboard shortcut

    I've used both IrfanView and Snagit for decades. But today a very surprising conflict has arisen.

    I use the Snagit shortcut Shift+Ctrl+C in any application which then lets me drag the mouse cursor and copy that rectangle to the clipboard, for pasting anywhere.

    But suddenly, if I use that shortcut on an IrfanView image, a highly magnified small square pops up. I have to right and left click a few times to remove it. This only happens in IrfaView.

    Examining the KB shortcuts I note (for the first time in all these years) that Shift+Ctrl+C is apparently supposed to assign the current image as my wallpaper. That does not occur, just as it has never occurred in the past. Nor do I ever anticipate wanting to use that operation. (But there is no way to disable it I gather, from reading previous posts here.)

    I also see that there is an IrfanView KB shortcut for magnifying: Ctrl+Shift+Mouse move, to "Show magnifier window". It seem that Ctrl+Shift+C is somehow now also triggering this!

    Any suggestions on fixing this would be much appreciated please.

    The Magnifier is a new feature in IrfanView 4.53. Don't know why, since Windows has a magnifier too.

    Thank you. Unfortunately I gather it cannot be disabled, otherwise I'd remove the magnifier.

    I've discovered that I can work around the conflict by ensuring I first click in the image window title before using Ctrl+Shift+C. But it's an annoyance, as I use that shortcut many scores of times daily and am used to being able to apply it anywhere without problems.

    Which was the last version before the magnifier was added? I may revert to that.

    If I remember rightly, it was IrfanView 4.52.

    Right-click is sufficient to remove the zoom rectangle.
