Windows 7: Screen Capture doesn't seem to work

18 Feb 2011   #11


Perhaps this will help:

Use Alt + PrtScrn + Fn to copy only the ACTIVE window. So, you would get only whatever window is open, neatly cut out already, and ready to paste in to your favorite image app.

Use PrtScrn + Fn to copy EVERYTHING showing on your screen, including opened property menus and dialogue boxes. If you then open NotePad, WordPad, Paint, or just about any imaging program you can use the Paste function to see the captured images.

Ashampoo® Snap 4 - Overview

Ashampoo Snap 4

Ashampoo Snap 4 enables you to create high-quality screenshots, videos and demos of your screen content. Edit, save and share your excellent results with others. This new version offers lots of innovative features and improvements, especially in the areas of video capture and editing tools.
The new video mode

Use the video mode to create videos and demos tailored to your needs. Capture film sequences or computer games (in a window) and save them as high-quality video files. You can also produce demos like video tutorials for software or presentations of websites. Videos and demos can be saved in different formats using various codecs. New fantastic features, like cursor and zoom effects, are available during video capture. Furthermore a recording can be paused and resumed anytime, in order to, for example, switch between applications or prepare the screen content. Of course, you are not limited to the main screen anymore, because Ashampoo Snap 4 also supports multi-monitor environments.
Even more editing tools for your screenshots

Create perfect-looking screenshots of your entire screen content or specially selected parts. After making a screenshot, an intuitive editor opens automatically and provides you with extensive editing tools, with which you can make your shots even more individual and original. Enhance your screenshots with, for example informative hints, arrows, texts, graphics, shapes, stamps and lots more, in order to convey facts or other topics in your shots easier and more illustrative.

Whether for work, for school or in your spare time - create screenshots and videos in no time and fill your colleagues, classmates or friends with enthusiasm for your amazing results.

Windows 10 Pro X64

Thanks Brink. That last one was what I was looking for in the Win 7 tips area and it wasn't there.

I tried using the "new" search box from the Tutorials page entering snipping but got no useful hits. Looks like the first one you mentioned (Airbot post) is in the General Discussion area and is not a Tutorial. It would be a good one to have there.
