lol. i had a feeling that something was happening because of the smartphone like flash.

in ubuntu they are saved directly to desktop i think which makes them instantly accessible.

now that you have told me about the screenshots folder, i found out where they are being saved.

great work man.. :)
i would like to add one thing to that list... Windowskey+W
opens items to search...

WindowsKey+W is searching for settings which is cool. WindowsKey alone searches for apps.

For me only pressing left windows key works as a jump from desktop to start screen and vice versa, try and let me know
