I love the snipping tool. If you have never used it and you take screen shots often, you may find it extremely useful. Previously, I used MS Paint for all of my screen shot needs. Well, after using both for a recent article, I noticed an inconsistency between the two. Check it out:


MS Paint:


Snipping Tool:


Do you see the difference? The inconsistency lies in the suggested text case for the file type. The difference in .png and .PNG makes all the difference in the world if you’re saving an image for the web. Linking Windows8.png and Windows8.PNG are completely different from one another; even though the names are the same, even so much as one character having the incorrect case will break your hyperlink. Now, while it’s true I could just manually save my image by typing the file name and the extension into the save box, the fact that the defaults differ for these two programs seems like a minor oversight with consistency. In fact, if I worked at Microsoft, I would probably push for a certain level of consistency across all Windows applications where things like this are concerned.


I love both of these applications and I won’t use them any less with this in mind, but after having noticed it, I looked back at my images folder for my site and I see just how inconsistent my image names are – undoubtedly based on which one of these applications I saved them with and then going back to link to the image based on how it resides on my server. Sure, that’s an oversight on my behalf, but I had no idea my behaviors had developed into that. Now I’m aware of it and, thus, the reason for this post. Not a big deal or anything, but when I run into these little quirks, I feel compelled to see if anyone else out there even cares. My last observation like this had to do with WinSAT. I wonder if they will ever fix that…




  1. This happens in Vista too (if i’m right and can remember good).

  2. I personally beleive that these days files with upper/mixed case file extensions is just bad.

    Same goes with all caps filenames.

    Why Windows even saves a case sensitive extension is beyond me, when you consider that Windows is case insesitive when opening a file.

  3. Agreed. Win8 suggestion… *ALL* files and file extensions will default to lower case for every single dialog box in every single application :)

  4. I personally think that most of Windows is pretty inconsistent when you compare many of the dialogs. If some dialogs, like the display properties dialog have been converted over to use the aero and web style controls, it leaves me wondering why they haven’t done the same thing with all the other windows configuration dialogs. Its as easy as using the same style window as a container and just coping the older dialog into it and putting tabs elsewhere like on the side. does any of this make sense to anyone else or do i need to show a comparison and a mock-up?

  5. Well you are most likely on apache. If you switch to IIS your life would be much better. I think its dumb for web documents to be case sensitive. It just makes it so confusing serving documents. Why on earth would you need to name two file the exact same but with different casing and serve that from your web server? The web server shouldn’t be case sensitive.

  6. Personally I like the intuitive way how Office OneNote handles screenshots better:
    Press Windows + S, Mark the area you want a screenshot off and paste it into any app from your clipboard.
    If they just could integrate such functionality directly into Windows (plus alpha support for snipping Aero windows like http://windowclippings.com/) itself like the magnifying stuff…

  7. I have the same problem, when I upload images with total commander I checked make filenames lowercase, and when I edit my page in html i always use lowercase in images’s link. It is annoying, is there a way to set lowercase in snipping tool e.g via registry?

    Thank You
