how can I remove yellow border line when screen capture?

I am building screen recording applications using Windows.Graphics.Capture namespace. Especially I am capturing monitors with the handle of HMONITOR.

When I run the applications, I see yellow border around the screen. I am wondering if there is any way to remove this. Looking at user side, it would help for them recognize app is recording, however, it's also annoying them.

    No, this is by design. As you mentioned, you've already known that this border will let the customer know the app is recording. On the other hand, it will also let the customer know which part of their device is being recorded. The users should be aware of what and when and where the current app is recording.

    Thank you.
