This would be a unique capture type. It would capture an image but capture a lot of the elements on the screen to individual layers. Picture an internet browser, icons on the desktop, and the background all being discrete layers in your capture. This would mean you would be able to move, delete, or resize any of those. An example would be if you want to remove the desktop icons and replace the background. You could simple click on them and delete them and drag a new background image and the internet browser window would still look great.

It’s less useful if Smart Move works well for you today.

This is far easier to implement on Mac, so it might be a Mac specific feature until we figure out a way to do it on Windows.

This Idea didn’t get enough votes to be under consideration for a release in the next year or so. But remember that Smart Move solves this problem too. On both Mac and Windows. And we’ll continue to make that experience better based on your feedback. We are marking this one as Not Planned for the time being. At this point, there are a lot of other things things we’ll be focusing on first. Definitely bring this up again when we do our next round of voting if you still see a need!

Here are the definitions of what the statuses mean for Ideas.
Here is the overall vote count for the rest of the Ideas in this roundup, as well as what has been implemented since our previous round.
