If your PC is slow or the web page contains many elements, use this mode to create your widget. It works faster than Hunting Mode.
Depending on how the site is set up, you can use this feature to create a static widget from the whole site without the unwanted elements you have removed. This widget will work as if you were on the real site.

You can manually refresh the content of your widget by clicking on the "Refresh" button. If you want to refresh it automatically then define the refresh period with the arrows.
If the content you have captured is bigger than the widget, click on this button to add a vertical scrollbar.

By selecting a multimedia object on your PC (video, music, pictures, etc.) or entering the URL of an object on the Internet, MyTooCool will automatically create a multimedia widget.
Some sites provide a permanent link to the multimedia objects they contain or the source code for these objects. You are advised to create your static Widget from the permanent link or the source code (copy and enter it in the MyTooCool internal widget url) rather than using Hunting Mode. If you use Hunting Mode to capture these objects and they are then redefined dynamically, the widget may no longer work.
