hello Cluent,

You could use Paint for this.

I like Irfanview - small, fast and free.

Ctrl-Print Screen and Alt-Prt Scn do the window capture, but Irfanview is exceptionally simple for paste-crop-copy-resize-resample functions.

Hi, cluent.

I'm not an expert but I've heard of Screenshot captor very well and this latest release is just from yesterday.

I also used to use MWsnap in my old XP laptop.

To capture the entire screen, I think "Print Screen" key is enough. For other screen captures, I use SnagIt. It's very good.
