First we need to set up a delay capture profile in Snagit.

  1. Hover over the Snagit capture window, then click on the button below the red button, and choose Manage Profiles
  2. Click New Profile, and then name the new profile
  3. Click the timer icon at the bottom under settings.
  4. Adjust the delay to your liking, click Apply > OK
  5. Assign a hotkey to this profile
  6. Click Save and close out of the Profile Manager.

Now, when you hit that hotkey you specified (or click on the profile name from the capture window), you will notice a countdown timer in the bottom right corner of your screen. While that is counting down, bring up the content you are trying to capture (for example a right click menu) and hold it on the screen. Once the timer completes, the screen will freeze and the cross hairs will appear allowing you to capture that content.
