Tips

Select only the area you want, that's easier than trimming out unwanted parts later.

You can tweak the edges of the selected area by dragging the mouse or pressing arrow keys.

Avoid selecting animations, blank areas or popup windows (like floating toolbars), they're difficult to match.

To avoid page numbers that popup as you scroll, scroll using the mouse wheel or scroll button, instead of the scroll bar thumb.

Avoid rolling the mouse over the selected area, it can cause items to highlight or things to pop up.

If you scroll a little too far, just back up.

If you need both horizontal and vertical scrolling, it's easiest to scroll around the outside of the area you want.   FourDirs

If scrolling around the outside leaves a hole in the middle, scroll back and forth through the entire area.

To capture a drop-down list, it's easiest to first drop the list, press F10, select the scrolling area, then, on the output toolbar, click Scroll.
