On my machine just clicking with left mouse button on shutter icon -- brings the main window. – Adobe Aug 1 '13 at 4:26
This is a known bug and was fixed in Ubuntu 13.10. – ændrük Aug 24 '13 at 16:18

I have the option in shutter 0.90 (Rev.1252):

Well, as you can see, there is not such an option in the menu that you showed in the image. Even so, you can select Selection or Section from that menu and after press Esc key; you will remain with the Shutter's main window in the front.

Another way is to press Alt+F2 and type shutter followed by Enter.

Personally, I keep Shutter in the Launcher and every time when I need it, I click it.

Thank you, but none of those suggestions are working for me. Selection/Section followed by Esc, running shutter from the dash, and clicking the Shutter icon in the launcher all just leave me with an empty desktop. – ændrük Aug 1 '13 at 4:54
@ændrük Then maybe you have a problem with Shutter. You can also consider to update at 0.90, as in this answer. – Radu Rădeanu Aug 1 '13 at 4:57
