    Always something new.

    Didn't have this before, but I guess something might have changed ?

    If I (now) take a Screenshot, using Shift-CMD-4 where I select just a portion of the screen with the left mouse button, then release the button, I end up with what I want just fine, but the resultant screenshot
    also has the menu bars on the top.

    The View, Zoom, Share, Selection, etc.

    Also true if I do a Shift-CMD-3 for the whole frame that I want.

    I certainly don't want these bars in the photos I save.

    What might have changed, or how do I revert back so it's only what I select via the -4, or just
    the photo part of the whole screen ?

    Are you talking about the menu bar of the preview app itself? Those won’t appear in the saved image unless you included them in your capture area

    It's the Preview app window toolbar for the image. It's not on the image.
