To Hide the Snapshot Dialog Box While Taking a Snapshot

If you want a snapshot of the entire screen and do not want the Snapshot dialog box to be included in the image, you can hide the Snapshot dialog box while you take a snapshot.

  1. If Snapshot is not running, choose Snapshot from the Image Viewer File menu.

  2. Select the Hide Window During Capture check box.

    The Snap Delay changes to 8 seconds and the message area at the bottom of the Snapshot dialog box displays "Timer adjusted to guarantee correct operation."

  3. Click Snap to take the snapshot.

    All Image Viewer windows disappear and do not reappear until after the snapshot has been taken.
