Editors' Review

Gadwin PrintScreen enables you to capture the exact image that you want and work with that image in a number of helpful and practical ways.

Pros

Rectangular screenshot: If you select the rectangular screenshot tool, you can specify the exact image area that you want to capture, so you don't have to waste time cropping out extraneous details.

Active window: Gadwin also offers the option to target just the open window, so you get a closer, more focused view, without needless details around the perimeter.

Customized hotkeys: There are three important commands in Gadwin PrintScreen, and you can assign custom hotkeys to each of them, rather than using the Print Screen button on your keyboard. You can set a hotkey to print screen, focus on just the active window, or focus on the area you specify with the rectangle tool.

Cons

Command icons: If you try to use the command icons and the widget rather than just the hotkeys, you may find that the interface is somewhat rough around the edges. The buttons that let you confirm or cancel a screenshot appear in awkward places and could react better.

Bottom Line

Overall, Gadwin PrintScreen is an excellent app for capturing and printing your screen images. The ability to focus on a given window or a drawn area is very flexible and practical.

"Great Product but their support is a ZERO"

November 01, 2015  |  By TOMMYBAYSHORE

2015-11-01 19:03:46  |  By TOMMYBAYSHORE

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 5.4.2

Pros

Great screen capture program.

Cons

Purchased the pro version, have emailed support numerous times over the past year, never once have i been contacted back, even emailed with my phone number and other email address's just in case it may be spam but still nothing. What good is a product if the support system behind it is non existant? Too bad, could be a five star product if they had a management team that gave two cents. Heck, i ever needed a 100 user licenses's and STILL never got a response...

Summary

Use the free version or find something else. DO NOT waste your money on this program as you will receive NO SUPPORT whatsoever.

"Latest versions annoying"

October 15, 2015  |  By Al Abama

2015-10-15 15:23:18  |  By Al Abama

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 5.4.2

Pros

The screen capture works well

Cons

There is now a widget which opens everytime you use this app. That's OK but when you're finished with the capture, the widget doesn't close. It has to be shut down manually. That's very annoying. In the options box there is a choice to show the widget (check the box) or don't show the widget (uncheck the box). I have unchecked it time and again and it just rechecks itself each time. There is an option to hide the widget. But then it peeks out at you with a blue streak on the left side of the screen. Too much for me.

Summary

What's really annoying is I have contacted Gadwin support twice now over the past several weeks, asking them about the widget situation. Also I asked if there was some way to install a previous version (before widget). They have not had the courtesy to reply.

"Program is Innovative"

April 11, 2015  |  By redddrake13

2015-04-11 09:20:55  |  By redddrake13

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 5.4.2

Pros

I hate using print-screen sometimes. I don't like having no control until I edit the picture. This cuts out the middle man. Personal setup helps you choose the keys and method of capture. Would love to see a web page-capture.

Cons

Fan of version 4.7 Tried web-capture program for trial, wouldn't even let me have a trial. I try again every year or so. Would love to support them for all my captures, but getting to be some poor download experiences. Times must be tough!

Summary

Not sure where the end product will come and if they would got back to the primal version, but I know Windows 8 and Apple products are forcing everything into another age of expansion. Wish Windows 7 would have stuck around a little longer, but Windows 8 it is.

Pros

Good software overall (older versions)

Cons

Very very bad customer service!

Summary

Do not buy the PRO version, after being their customer for years, they ignored my requests of support, use the FREE version instead or download Screenshot Captor from www.donationcoder.com
