Capture Window UI always selects the whole monitor.

Description

When I select "Capture Window" (using interactive window capture mode) I only have the choice of capturing the taskbar (or one of its child windows) or the rest of the desktop.
Application windows and their children are not recognized.

Environment

Running on Windows 10 (1803) with a two monitor setup.

Certain applications, for instance Chrome or Firefox, do the rendering of the window without having child windows visible from outside the application (usually Windows.Froms, MFC and so on). From my perspective, the technology we use in Greenshot is "dying" and doesn't bring much anymore.

I will need to see if there are other ways, for instance using the accessibility information...

This problem is the case for most newer applications...
