Hey guys.
So I have this issue whenever I want to take a screen shot, my screen glitches after. Right up until I close a program I did the screen shot on innitialy.

I'm using Acer Aspire 3 if that helps. Debian 10.

What program are you using to take the screen-shot?
When did this problem start? Was it working before and broke after an update, or after you installed something new? or was it always broken?

I believe it's the default gnome thing.. My guess it was always like this, although I noticed it quite a while after the new debian instalation.

What happens if you use: scrot
from the command line?

Probably a bug in gnome-screenshot. After a bit of a search - there were plenty of bugs that mentioned graphical glitches after taking a screenshot.

Glad updating to Debian 11 fixed it!

Personally, I use scrot (fast and lightweight, terminal based screenshot software) in a short script I wrote.

And then in my WM (dwm - a tiling WM) - I’ve bound a keybind to run the script and take a screenshot. I’ve used scrot for years.

I find gnome screenshot extremely annoying. Especially its pointless flash and shutter noise. Completely unnecessary!

While not really all that relevant, but seeing as others suggested other methods, I'm a dyed in the wool Shutter fan. It does exactly what I need it to do.
