Windows 10 compatibility for MWSnap.

I have just installed MWSnap300 to a new installation of Windows 10. When I click on the Snap button the screen is magnified about 2 times, and much of the page is no longer accessible as it is now off screen. Am I missing something in the setup? It seems to be the same MWSnap that I have successfully used for many years, but with Windows 10 is behaving differently.

The latest version of the software is working just fine. I've found the official website and managed to download and install the software then used its features in Windows 10. Before starting the software I've also used the Compatibility mode to set the application to run with Windows XP compatibility.

Hi Sean, thanks for your response. I can't make out what is happening. I have uninstalled the original installation,downloaded again from the official site and installed MWSnap300 in compatibility mode XP SP2. MWSnap still behaves the same way - as soon as I click on the "Snap" button everything that was behind MWSnap is magnified. I think I'll have to look around for another similar app that functions OK.

The only other item of interest is that when I install MWSnap under compatibility mode XP, I repeatedly receive an error message indicating "Archive is Corrupted" when I attempt to uninstall it. The only way I have found to uninstall it is to install it again without a compatibility mode and then uninstall it.
