How to capture window including Window title bar?

I would like to capture a window including the titlebar.
Right now, each capture excludes the titlebar until I hover over the titlebar, then the region/window expands to include it.
Whilst capturing many(!) screenshots in a row (without preview and using a hotkey) this 'expanding' action gets boring.

I know I might create a workaround with 'application name'  as caption, but, as said, it is just a workaround, not entirely what I had in mind.

Mine captures the title bar.

It could be the settings.

I believe that the issue reported wasn't that SnagIt was unable to capture the title bar, just that an extra step seems to be involved. Upon selecting the window initially, only the client area without the title bar is first auto-selected and one must perform some mouse manipulation to ensure the title bar is included. ;)

As Rick said that is probably your problem.

When you try to capture move your crosshairs over the title bar.

As an aside, I'm not really sure exactly how or why the conversation was changed to begin discussing running multiple instances of SnagIt. LOL

As said, normally the title bar is not captured, unless I hover over it, in which case the selection  (dotted line) is expanded so as to include the title bar.

As I wasn't entirely sure in what direction the conversion in this thread would go and more or less assuming there was indeed no solution, I checked with support. Maybe it would be a new feature..??

Credits for the below solution go to support

There is a very minor drawback (at least with me): 
'Capture Cursor' does not work in this mode.

As said use regular mode and hover crosshairs over tilebar.

I have been doing it for year and have not suffered any irreparable or otherwise detrimental  damage.

I'm nsure why it is a big deal for you.

I don’t see any reason to make it a feature.

I agree with you, normally it is no issue. I am doing the same for years as well. 

However, only when you create many screenshots, one after the other, then you want to avoid this extra handling.
Right now, with this specific (new) preset, I just hit  F12, go to next screen, F12, go to next screen, etc.

Does anyone have any experience with the new version of Snagit 2019 and the titlebar. It seems that this version insists on INcluding the title bar (and scroll bar, tabs in excel, etc). The old version always gave you options for what to choose, but I can't seem to get the new one to do anything but the whole darned thing (though I CAN choose to ONLY highlight the scroll bar. Which is in no way useful).
