SnagIT since at least version 4 has been able to capture drop-down lists
using the Window selection, and command buttons, too. However, it cannot, in
my experience, capture toolbar-type buttons. I set a fixed rectangular area
(24x24 pixels or some such) and capture these buttons with the
cursor-capture turned off by mousing over the button to pop it up and then
using the fixed region capture.

I remember trying FullShot, perhaps at an earlier version. I may be
mis-remembering, but didn't it lose some of its capture features in WinNT?
That is, didn't it have more extensive capture options in Win9x than WinNT?
I think that's what turned me away from it . . . SnagIT has a full set of
features available in NT, 2000, and 9x.
