"Capture screen" clipper not working in Windows 11

EN brings its own helper, that will install in the taskpad (if Win 11 still has it …). The helper has options to grab a crosshairs section, a single window or the whole screen. This is how grabbing to EN works.

No idea about the general screenshot feature of Win 11.

Well, not using Windows 11 myself, and having no plans to do so I really have no idea.

But if it worked with Win10 and stopped with Win11, to me it sounds like a Windows (update) problem. I have read a lot about Win11 being more a beta than a release software. Maybe they just have not implemented it (yet).

I think for quite some time now the old screenshot tool (Alt-Ctrl-S) has been replaced with the new Shift-Win-S. Maybe you try this key combination?

With the new tool you can make rectangle shots, but also polygon or freeform.

@Alanbarker - I just got a Windows 11 machine, and I'm experiencing the same problem. My Windows 7 and Mac can still do the region capture. Were you able to fix it by any chance? I'd appreciate any ideas you might have. I use this feature more than any other. The Windows snipping tool (ctl + alt + S) is a pain, and doesn't allow direct import into Evernote as I'm sure you've discovered. Thanks!

This is a problem created by Microsoft. Win 11 intercepts the screen capture.

There isn't a fix yet. I'm using Win+S then pasting into a note. Not quite the old Evernote screen capture but close enough for me.

A fix will depend on either Microsoft sitting out its changes or Evernote Devs working out what has changed in Win 11 and rolling out a fix. Either way I'm not expecting a speedy resolution.
