  1. Start menu keeps popping out and taking screenshots on its own


    I am using windows 10 and my gadget is o+ notepad. The start menu keeps popping out even if I remove it to the keyboard. I reformat the notepad and reinstall windows 10 again using the installer from the website of microsoft. Still, the same problem appears and now it takes screenshots on its own. While I am typing, the start menu keeps appearing then it will take screenshots on its own then if i continue typing either the settings will appear, the file folder, run, magnifier and so on.

    :)

    How to make screenshot of the start menu?

    I want to take a screenshot of the start menu. This is my procedure:

    1. Open "SnippingTool"
    2. Set a delay, say, 5 seconds
    3. Click "New"
    4. Click Windows key, so that the start menu pop up
    5. 5 seconds times out and (hopefully) I can start making the screenshot.
    However, after the fifth step, the start menu is still editable. While I expect it to be masked by a translucent white indicating I can make screenshot over it, it's not the case. In fact, I must click somewhere to enable screenshot on start menu. Is there
    any better/straightforward way to make screenshot of the start menu? Thanks!
