EpicGames launcher doesn’t provides screenshot by hitting F12 or PrintScrn. Windows 10 also has screenshot function for Win+(Alt)+PrintScrn also saves game screen but – “What Remains of Edith Finch” has many problems when I using Windows game overlay, specially any Ctrl,Alt or Shift key makes POV going to zoom in ! Yes it was not an answer by using windows screenshot.

So I made an utility to capture anything with a KEY.
