  • DisableUpdateCheck (REG_DWORD) registry value disables update checks

  • PersonalPath (REG_SZ) registry value overrides personal path of ShareX, which is by default "Documents\ShareX" folder
  • Added "Borderless window" tool. Some games such as Minecraft don’t let you take screenshots (screenshots looks black) while running in exclusive fullscreen mode and there is no in-game setting for fullscreen borderless too. Therefore, we wrote this tool to let us make the game fullscreen borderless and allow us to take screenshots from it
