This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: How do I turn off OneClick / Capture Window in Snagit 12?

Love Snagit, can't stand the "Fly-out Capture Window" on the desktop.  Please give us a way turn this off in Snagit 12!  Hot keys work fine.  I use Snagit constantly, but don't appreciate it hijacking my desktop.  Imagine if every application you installed used this?  Your screen would be ringed with fly-outs and and you would be inundated with stuff popping up every time your mouse touched the edge of the screen (the fly-outs in Windows I are already annoying enough). Otherwise great upgrade, but please, please give us a way to turn that off or I'm going to have to go back to v11.  Thank you!

I agree completely. I had to un-install the program and ask for a refund (which was very quickly and courteously given) because I now had to perform two operations (clicks) in order to reach the "classic" capture screen. I can understand why some people may find the "fly out capture window" useful - and that is fine. How about an option in 12 to launch the program the "old" way? If this happens I will definitely re-purchase.

Thank you Tony from a different thread!!!  Found the answer:

Click the gear icon in the Capture window for preferences:  The preference options for turning one click off/on are in the "Capture WIndow and Notification Area Icon" area with options:
- Enable Capture Window
- Enable Notification area icon
- Enable capture window and notification area icon

Choose the second option, this disables the popup fly-out window in SnagIt 12 and puts it back down in the system tray - although must say that is completely unintuitive.  Happy again :-)
