"Widget" or "gadget" may cause some users to have PTSD episodes about Windows Vista or 8.

I've seen "applet" used on multiple platforms without anyone having an attack.

Looks like TechSmith gives Snagit's its own name "OneClick"

Faststone calls theirs a "Capture Panel"

I've also seen it called "Toolbar", "Contols", and "Floating Panel".
