If you do something like this, you won't have to minimize the stack, it
will hide itself while taking the shot:
put the working screenrect into tRect
set the visible of this stack to false
export snapshot from rect tRect to file \
specialFolderPath("desktop") & "/screenshot.png" as png
set the visible of this stack to true
