How to capture partial screenshots on Android devices

Capturing screenshots on Android devices is not new. The function of taking a picture of the screen was introduced with Android 4.0 and never changed since then, but thanks to some developers, discovered in a hidden code, Google is introducing it to capture partial screenshots in Android 7.1 Nougat. It is already possible to take partial screenshots by installing ROM CM14.1, but this privilege reserved only for users of this ROM, with the inconvenience that it is no longer possible to return to the full screen screenshot.
