Snagit 18, how to disable "The Capture Window"

Hello All,

In my previous company I've been using Snagit 8. This worked very nice so at this company we bought Snagit too, now Snagit 18.
Except for the many improvements there is, in my opinion, an annoying item which I can not find how to disable.

In Snagit 8 my short key gave me the cross hairs to capture a random part of the screen. capture what is required and the editor popped-up. (this was pre-set)
In Snagit 18 my short key gives me "The Capture Window" then to press the red button and continue. Or when "The Capture Window" is still in the background it dissapears and I've to use the short key again.

How to get to the Snagit 8 situation that my short key immediately delivers the pre-set way to capture instead of the, in my eyes, annoying "The Capture Window" and having to perform additional actions behaviour?

Thanks in advance for your support

Open capture window and at bottom "presets" select the image or the standard preset.

There you go.

Or you can set/save your own preset.
