    Snipping tool extends beyond window

    When I select "Window Snip" on Snipping tool it includes a little of whatever is behind on the sides and bottom.

    Is this a new issue? I'm pretty sure it didn't do it in 8 but can't quite remember and don't have any older versions installed at the moment to check.

    It looks like they haven't updated the tool with the new borderless windows. Hopefully they'll fix that.

    Nice catch Adam. No, It does not happen in Windows 8 and surprisingly, it does not happen with third party software either such as Snagit, FSCapture etc...

    Nice catch indeed! It's definitely the new 'no boarders' thing, with a classic theme it captures boarders.

    Good to know borders are still being seen by something :)
    A little too much transparency

    Thanks for the replies guys. It was bugging me more than it deserved too for some reason.
