Take, for instance, Lightshot. When I press the PrtSc button an overlay appears in which I can select area, add text, etc. How does the app do it? I mean, it stores the screen image somewhere before letting me customize it, right? And how does an overlay work and how does it take over? I mean, overlay is not considered an application as I can't Alt+Tab out of it, right? I seem to formulate my questions too poorly for a searce engine to help me out.
