screen capture by key-stroke (not mouse) shows fingers in WinSnap

Do other programs do the same?

I am working with a pop-up part of a web-sire, the corrections of the transcription at:
https://codexsinaiti...g/en/manuscript.aspx

So I want the “capture” to be by key-stroke, but no pointer fingers/hand showing

Which programs do that?
Or maybe a feature in WinSnap.

I can add a picture if needed.

Not sure what 'fingers' you are talking about?
Capturing a screen without the mouse cursor/pointer is an option in Screenshot Capture. Don't know about WinSnap.

The goal is to take a REGION picture.

The hand is part of the pic when doing a region pic.

Apologies for not being clear.
I will try full page and see if it ends up big enough, reducing it with Abby.

Correction: the hand comes up from the web page, not the pic program.

So no easy answer.

Is it vital to use keystrokes?

Some screenshot programs can use delayed capture, e.g. FastStone Capture (low-cost payware and very good).  Have you tried delayed capture, which might give you time to move the cursor out of your region of interest before the capture happens?

Also PicPick (free for personal use), ShareX (free) and HyperSnap (shareware).  ShareX can be run from the command line (don't know about the others), which might be another way of making a delayed screenshot.

I think my brain just doesn't work the way Mouser's Screenshot Captor does.  Maybe it's the amount of customisation.  Some programs include everything but the kitchen sink. Mouser gives you a choice of kitchen sinks to suit all decors...
