Camtasia (Windows): Error: Unable to Register Record/Pause or Marker Hotkey

Problem

This error message is displayed: Error: Unable to Register Record/Pause or Marker Hotkey

Solution

This error varies on the hotkeys that are causing this conflict. When an application is first opened, it will automatically register the hotkey that will be used with the operating system. After that, no other application can use the same hotkey until the application is closed or unregistered.

If another application has registered the same hotkey from what the Recorder uses, the Recorder will launch an error that a certain hotkey is already being used.

The best workaround is to change the Recorder's hotkeys to something that does not conflict with another application or to change the hotkey in the other application. To change the hotkey in Camtasia Recorder, select Tools > Options > Hotkeys.
