Lightshot failed to register short key on Windows 10

Lightshot is a wonderful little utility that enables easy selective screenshots and quick annotations.

However, sometimes the Lightshot application can't register the Print Screen key as it's short key due to another program having already registered it. The culprit is usually Windows' OneDrive.

To prevent this clashing you need to disable the 'Auto Save Screenshots' feature of OneDrive.

To do so open OneDrive then Settings -> Auto-save and ensure Automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive is not checked.

You'll need to restart Lightshot to allow it to successfully register the short key.
