Full-featured tool for making great screen captures
Windows Vista / Windows XP
The PrtScr application is an easy way to make screen captures. While it may seem similar to the built-in capturing functions of a standard computer, it offers unique features that set it apart. Users can define separate areas of the screen to download, send captured images by email, and much more.
Much like the stock capturing tool, PrtScr can be launched with a keyboard shortcut. This shortcut can be changed in the program settings. Once launched, it sits in the system tray. A small icon indicates that the program is running. Users can also click this icon to access the various tools.
To capture images, users have a variety of options. The program can capture the entire screen or designated areas. Numerous shortcuts can be used to perform specific tasks. These include keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures. Once images are taken, a unique animation is used to represent the image moving to a specified folder. The stylish 3D animation looks fun and works as an indicator to the program's actions. A small window also pops up to name, edit, print, or send the image from email.
The main program window includes various settings, including the actions after an image is captured. The application can be set to perform a specific task automatically. These tasks include sending the file via email or having a window pop up for further instructions. File format, destination, hot keys, quality, and more can also be set for full customization.
