Explorer Client Settings

The Explorer Client settings allow you to activate the Explorer client for AutoCapture. The AutoCapture Explorer client enables you to right-click and capture specified file types in Windows Explorer.

The Explorer Client settings can be opened by right-clicking a file in a Windows Explorer window, and on the shortcut menu, clicking AutoCapture > Configuration to display the AutoCapture Configuration dialog box. The following table describes options for configuring the AutoCapture Explorer client.
