To be fair, $10 allows you to register a group of utilities, including upgrades and any new software added to the group, currently numbering 58 apps.

This is a comment from the developer:

WindowClipMBI does much more than that. To start, yes you can follow the procedure you gave to create a screenshot of most any window on the screen. But WindowClipMBI can take screenshots that are not possible with this method or any other.

Here are some differences advantages to WindowClipMBI, as it exits in version 1.1.5:

0) WindowClip allows you to take screen shots of windows while they are hidden behind other windows. With your method you have to keep bringing the desired windows to the front manually, which can be a hassle when you have multiple shots to take.

1) WindowClipMBI enables you to create composited screenshots of ALL the current windows of any application. This has some interesting side effects, where you can get screenshots that you can't get by your method. For example: try getting a screenshot of the Dock as you have dock menus exposed for an item in the Dock. You also have the option of superimposing the shot over the desktop image.

2) Using Preferences you can create screenshots of windows that apply "framing effects" - such as window shadows, that you can't get with your method. You have other options with Preferences such as whether the image generated should be opaque or transparent.

3) You don't have to remember and execute all those 4 steps. Maybe you laugh at that, but often times reducing a multistep task into a single task can expedite a workflow dramatically, especially if repetitive. For example, creating a new document in Preview manually requires the additional step of going to Preview and selecting a menu item. This is much more convenient than repeating 5 steps over and over sometimes.

4) WindowClip provides previews of all windows in the menu, and provides scaling on the fly using the menu scale control. You can use Preferences to filter which apps are included in the menu to improve menu preview generation or menu clutter.

5) Screenshots can be timed right from the menu bar, which is always accessible, and composited shots currently delay always by 5 seconds so that you can setup the apps windows, with menu selections, tool tops showing etc. before the shot is taken. You have the option of the cursor being superimposed on the screenshot, which is not true of the system produced screenshot, and other methods.

6) WindowClip has the option of always selecting the window for you so it doesn't appear "deactivated" as your method does, unless you manually select the window.

7) Finally my program is open to user suggestions for more features you may want, and more features are on the way, and updates are always free. Also, as the other reply noted, this program is part of a bundle of over 50 other apps you get for your minimum 10 dollar purchase :-)
