Editors' Review

+

Excellent screen capture apps aren't hard to come by, but excellent free ones are. With sophisticated features at no cost, it's hard to reach higher than Gadwin PrintScreen. An attractive, easily navigated interface opens up a customization wonderland for users to decide default settings for shortcut key associations, capture preferences, and output.

For our purposes, the clicking and dragging regions is the clear choice. Misjudge your region's dimensions and Gadwin PrintScreen lets you readjust them without having to start over, something many commercial competitors don't do. Setting the app to automatically open each screen capture in your favorite viewer or editor makes up for the program's lack of built-in image editor, still achieving a seamless screen capture experience from start to finish that grabs and delivers shots just where you want them.

"Installs malware"

May 23, 2012  |  By jdchrista

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.6

Pros

I didn't get past the malware upon installing it.

Cons

YontooIEClient.dll. Google it. If you don't want it on your system, don't install Gadwin Printscreen. Comodo Internet Security picked up on it during the installation and couldn't remove it completely.

Summary

Another FAIL by download.com.

"Great for Genealogy. Does what it states very well."

January 12, 2012  |  By bradhallsr

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.6

Pros

It's Free, what more can I say!! Great screen capture, of what you want and not the whole screen. Allows you to save your image as any file extension. Can choose where you want your images saved. Can set up auto naming feature for every image you copy from your screen. If you can see it on your screen, you can capture it with this wonderful free program. Best free program I have ever found for helping with genealogy research.

Cons

Can't think of anything I don't like!!

Summary

With this great free program you can select what you want on your screen, where to store it, what file extension you want to use as well as what you want to name each image. Best program I have found for doing genealogy research.

"Simple printscreen utility."

December 14, 2011  |  By mcdonr

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.6

Pros

Works on Windows 7 - 64bit.

Cons

There's no "Don't ask next time." or, it's not obvious how to remove the message. Each time you take a picture, it will ask you to cancel or accept. There's no option to always accept no matter what.

Summary

Have been using built-in print screen + irfanview for capturing screen for years. But there are times I just need it pre-cut for me (capturing the current window). I have used a pro-version of Snag-It in the past but I really don't use all of the features, and feels a little slow. Gadwin is a very simple tool. Just install, and it immediately works with the print-screen button. Customization only requires a few seconds of your time.

"Great little program!!"

December 09, 2011  |  By 2DewDrop

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.6

Pros

I used this on XP for years, so I was ecstatic that it was available for 7. It works seamlessly with little fuss. One click on 'Print Screen' and follow the instructions. Send it to your printer or save it as you'd like.

Cons

I don't have any cons. The above reviews are puzzling to me since I have not experienced their problems at all.

Summary

It's worked great for me. Take time to get to know it and the settings available. Best of all, it's free.
