If they show when moused over I'd be suspecting a background process keeping focus away from the GUI ...

Hello Sed,

If you have Windows 10 installed you should have "Snipping Tool". It the best screen grab tool I ever use.

Thank you,

ShareX is one of the most powerful free image / video captures out there:

I don't get it... yes I used to use that printscreen button too.. but it capture the whole screen. If you need a specific area you will than crop accordingly. Extra work. When I use Snipping tool, it is easier... and  you can set delay when you need it to capture something. Specially, capturing something like Right click menu. But hey.. it just me.

And it free.. well it come with Windows 10.

WTF
Aha, THAT could be browser not liking to be skinned. Happens to me as well AND on the Windows 10 "APPS", however I'm always on Maximized and Rarely use the apps so... never bothered me.

The above picture  was just clicking Google no APP just a front page of a site???

EVERY WEB PAGE that X covers the WB's X

This is why I dropped WB's once before -- It did the same thing and for $10 I don't need the aggrivation

I can't minimize either I have to CLOSE to go to my next web page
