The Capture Widget interface

The widget is the docked capture interface that is familiar to users of previous versions of Snagit. It provides ever-present access to basic capture options and presets. To use it, hover the mouse over the interface and click the capture button.

Enable the Capture Widget

From the Snagit capture window, select View > Show Capture Widget. Then close the main Snagit interface if it remains open.

Move the widget anywhere along the top (Windows only) or side (Windows and Mac) of your screen by clicking and dragging.
