Every so often I need to either print a screen or send a print screen via email for some one to see. Using Gadwin Free Print Screen utility makes this chore very easy. The free version is not clogged up with useless stuff that many of us won’t use. Just a straight forward simple to use utility that does what it is supposed to do. Nice.

Over at Gadwin they state on their site the following information:

Screen captures can be used for many reasons. Use captured images from Gadwin PrintScreen to show off your product on the web. Enhance technical or sales documents and embed captures into presentations. Gadwin PrintScreen can help you capture and print or save computer screen data.

On most Windows computers a full screen of data can be put on the clipboard by pressing the PrintScreen key. This sends whatever you see on screen to the clipboard, which you must then edit in a different graphics program to cut to the right size and image format. Here are some other reasons not to use the prefabricated PrintScreen function of Windows:

Full screen of data can be put only on the clipboard.
It is either difficult or impossible to capture some elements of a Windows screen, such as different shaped cursors.
You spend too much time making image captures.

Give it a try and see what you think.

Comments welcome.
