While Snipping Tool still delights me, today I learned to Capture a screenshot with IrfanView that shows the mouse cursor! … \:D/
Open Irfan View -> Options -> Capture/Screenshot (check/modify settings) -> Start -> Ctrl-F11
Capture Setup has many controls. I set the capture area to Foreground window. I left capture method at default Hot Key CTRL+F11. I left default at including mouse cursor. And after the capture show in main window of IrfanView.
Yes will need to crop
But cropping–once I realised* how (when there is an image on the canvas and no paint tools selected, just left click drag, let-go, Ctrl+Y)–is also rather nifty in IrfanView, offering (via Edit -> Show selection grid) a golden ratio grid.

PS – if you were wondering
- \:D/ in title is a Happy Dance
- the screenshot for which I wanted a cursor…
