Hello,

For a lot cases, you ask to enable the Legacy capture mode ; can you explain what is the difference between legacy and standard mode ?



Thanks.

Hello Thomas,

Sorry for the late reply.

The difference between the legacy capture mode and the default mode is that different screen capture methods are used.

Hope that helps.

Hello,

"This is 2 different modes", yes I known :')

But technically, what's the difference ?

Hello Thomas,

The difference between these two modes has to do with how screen capture is processed deep inside the operating system. Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 require certain modifications to the mechanism. On the surface this difference just manifests itself in that check box that the user can check or uncheck to resolve problems with screen capture.

In most cases you should leave this checkbox the default (i.e. unchecked).
