Screenshot Captor

At a Glance

Ever felt unfairly limited by Windows' built-in screenshot taker, the ubiquitous PrintScreen button? Screenshot Captor takes control of this key and allows you to exert fine control over the screenshot process.

For those who frequently take screenshots and want the ability to accept or reject them on the fly, this program is for you. Screenshot Captor can grab a specific region, an entire window, or an entire screen. It can even piece together a big screenshot from a scrolling window. This last feature takes a bit of practice--for example, if capturing a long Web page, you must first click the browser to focus it before capturing, as the utility will take control of the arrow keys to determine the size of the captured window.

With the ability to capture any kind of window in any application, Screenshot Captor is the last word in screen grabbing. It possesses all the features found in commercial screen grab application such as SnagIt, and it's totally free--though the host asks for a suggested donation of any amount, which gains you a license key for all DonationCoder programs, advance releases, contests and discounts. In the near future, the minimum donation to gain the license key will be $50.
