CorelCapture - Message: The Hotkey Is Being Used Already By This System. Please Choose Another One.



When trying to set up user defined hot keys to begin CorelCapture, the following message will appear:

The hotkey is being used already by this system. Please choose another one.

If this message appears, then the user is unable to set up their own hot keys to begin the capture. The problem results from a third party application that is either launched or has a process running in the background which is interfering with Captures use of the keyboard setup.


It will be necessary to turn off some of these start up programs in order to disable whatever program is interfering with CorelCapture. Simply go to this link for information on how to turn off Start Up programs:
