There are all sorts of options if Raptr is letting you down, including the inbuilt Snipping tool mentioned above.

I use an old program called MWSnap, which saves to a folder that you can specify. Like most screen capture programs, (and there are many around) it also does individual Windows and sections. At the time I ran into it (years ago) it was the only one that I found kept the rendering correct for a vast range of different image programs:

I'm running it fine on Win 8.1 but haven't yet tried it on Win 10.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Maybe this will help:

However, the screenshot location is not set in a tablet of stone, you set it to put the screenshot whatever you like. You should be able to use "Save as" and choose the location. If you're not sure where screenshots have been put try typing screenshot in search and see if any show up.

I guess you've checked in the recycle bin to see if it somehow ended up there?

Nope.

I must've deleted at some point.
But I have raptr, screenshot folder in D:\Users\User\Pictures\Raptr Screenshots
It still doesn't save screenshot even after I use the hotkey to take screenshot.

But I have raptr screenshot folder ...

In other words it is not a Windows 7 Microsoft problem but rather a third-party Raptr problem. Best thing to do is head over to Raptr for solution.

Maybe there is a bug with the Raptr program. I'm using this screenshot tool which also enables me to save the screenshot automatically to a specific folder (which can be changed) after I hit the PrtSc key. Never had a problem.

I like using the Snipping Tool as well as Print Screen and Alt Print Screen.

Is this program safe? I'm also using a dual monitor and I just need a screenshot of the bigger screen.

Well, I've been using it for years, back in the Windows 98 days, if not Windows 95.

I've not run into any security issues.

It hasn't been updated since 2002 but it still works fine.
