This image corresponds to the Python 3.5 installer. Would it be useful to get a new screenshot of the latest installer ?

I can do it if needed

There is also a conflict between the image and the text:

Under `Selecting a custom install`, a line says
To perform an all-users installation, you should select “Customize installation”. In this case:

But the screenshot of the installer shows that you can select an option on the main menu to install for all users.

What should be done about this conflict ? I cannot currently run the latest installer on Windows but will be able to tonight or tomorrow to check it if no one did before.

That option is only for the py.exe launcher and not the whole installation (notice the target path is still under C:\Users).

Having an updated image would be fine, though the only difference should be the version number. If you can provide a similar sized image of the 3.7 installer (screen scaling at 100%) then I'll add the drop shadow, cover the username and update the docs.

Here is the image, it should be the same size (by a few pixels).

Oddly enough, I couldn't get the bottom part to unfold and I can't figure out why

It looks like display scaling, which you'll need to disable for this. The UI for the installer is slightly aware of scaling, but not enough to resize multiline elements automatically.

Here it is again, with display scaling disabled ! :)

Hi there, any news on this ?

Of course it isn't top priority but might as well do it if you can :)

I made a fake 3.8.0 installer and made the screenshot, so we'll only backport it to 3.8. I think 3.7 is fine with what it has.
