    I don't have gdm3, or gnome-screenshot, but I tried xfce4-screenshooter, and that seems to work fine. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Re: Minor issue with file sorting

    I am not sure why you blame linux for this. Linux uses a normal alphabetical order. How is it supposed to know that a & in the middle of the name means something special in the Windows world? In any...
