How to disable Easy Capture Manager

Easy Capture Manager is a small program installed on you PC together with your Samsung printer software. If I am honest, it is a bit annoying as it switches on automatically every time I press Prt + Sc key on the keyboard. Judging from all the comments between my Youtube video I am not the only one who had this problem.

As far as I know you cannot delete Samsung Easy Printer Manager without deleting the whole program that you need for your printer. However, there is a very easy way to disable it 🙂

Here is my short online tutorial that will allow you to stop Easy Capture Manager from activation. Please follow there 3 easy steps:

#1 Press Prt Scr

First press Prt Scr key on your keyboard. The key is usually located to the right from F12 key. Of course, Easy Capture Manager will start. So annoying 🙂

Press Print Screen key on your keyboard

#2 Take a screenshot

With Easy Capture Manager activated, press left key on your mouse, move the cursor and release the key. By doing so you will create a screenshot from part of your screen and also you will open the whole program.

#3 Turn off easy capture manager

Find the Option icon in the Menu (it’s the one with a gear symbol) and click on it. A small window will pop out with three options. You can change the keys sequence for triggering program to Ctr + Prt Sc or disable it completely by marking “None”. Confirm your choice by clicking OK and close the program. That’s all, now if you press Prt Sc Easy Capture Manager should not start 🙂

  5. Thank you SO much. This annoyance was driving me sick.
    I fixed it following your instructions.

    But I keep wondering: How can they even think of (by default) forcing such a thing upon the buyers of this Samsung Printer and not think it will be a real annoyance to most people?

    Where are Samsung’s brain and heart regarding this?
