Default Option for Screenshot

Is there any command for taking screenshot that is automatically saved to the clipboard?
As you know, after using screenshot application a screen pops up and asks what do we want to do with the shot, like shown below.

xfce4-screenshooter --help
xfce4-screenshooter --clipboard --region

…and then bind whichever command you want to a key.

In XFCE4 Settings Manager > Keyboad > Application Shortcuts, there are 3 default application shortcuts.

print xfce4-screenshooter -fd 1
shift+print xfce4-screenshooter -wd 1
ctrl+shift+print xfce4-screenshooter -r

I switched mine around and used the long option form, but the installation defaults can be viewed /etc/skel/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml. One of these could be edited/saved with @megavolt’s solution if it suits your needs more.


  • To display shortcut keys from the command line:
    • xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -l -v
