Many here already are quite well aware that the scrolling whel on the mouse can be very helpful when capturing text and teh lik inorder to copy it for later pasting.

Sine Windows 7, I think, we have the option to use our left (usually) mouse button in conjunction with our scrolling wheel in order to get a first time accurate capture of a specific text.

Start at the bottom of any text you may wish to capture, click and hold the left mouse button on the first line after capturing all or part of this line, using you middle (or other finger) while holding down the left button scroll up to the top line of what you want to capture and make any adjustment necessary there in order to finish it.

This technique helps avoud those wild captures where you get photos, ads, or worse.

I have this option in Windows 10, but I do believe it came about in W7... God bless you.
