Help capturing systray notifications

Automatic Screenshotter:
I tried to set options so as system tray notifications would be captured: this not happening yet. Are my settings incorrect?

Do you need a screenshot of the error message? Or is the content of the message the goal? In the latter case, practically all of those type of messages are being tracked by the Event Viewer, built into Windows itself. Using the Event Viewer isn't difficult at all, but some might find the interface not so straightforward to work with.

Also, the Event Viewer can be a treasure trove on info, yet also an obfuscating mess. Mileage will vary.

Not sure if the Event Viewer is accessible when using Windows 10 Home edition. It is accessible with Windows 10 Pro and better.

Re Automatic Screenshotter --
anyone got any help on capturing system tray notifications, or ideas why it's not working ?

I tried reducing the height of 'either dimension' (see screenshot options OP) to 10 pixels with no succes.

I need a little more info -- what you are trying to do and what is happening vs what you expect.

^ I was hoping AS would capture system tray notifications?
Currently it doesnt capture them (my query was if changing the options could change that)

I think it works more with windows (?)
I was also hoping it would capture small-er dialogue boxes such as error messages, and, e.g.

Can you post a screenshot of your Capture Options and Capture Rules tab in options?

^ Capture Rules are in OP

Capture Options here:

Note #1:
I tried selecting the 'Full Desktop' option with no change (tested with the mini Dopus dialog shown above).

Note #2:
the volume control does get copied
