Screen Capture + Print

CNET Editors' review

The Snipping Tool that comes with most versions of Windows 7 is a perfectly capable -- if basic -- screen capture tool. But there are plenty of copies of Windows out there that can use a third-party screen capture app, and more than a few of them are Windows 7; many users prefer a different screen capture tool, often one that does more than the Snipping Tool, though some are merely different. Screen Capture + Print is a simple tool with a fast and intuitive screen capture process. It can capture the entire screen, whole windows, or rectangular selections, and copies, saves, or prints them, as you like.

Screen Capture + Print is portable freeware, so we extracted and saved the program's executable to a suitable directory and launched it. The PDF-based Help file explains how easy it is to launch the program with Windows, if you want to use Screen Capture + Print as your everyday screen capture tool. When it's open, Screen Capture + Print lives in the system tray, so we also recommend changing the system tray settings to show both the icon and notifications, which makes the icon persistent; you only need to click it to activate the selection tool. Clicking the icon selects the entire screen and grays it out, replacing the cursor with crosshairs. We merely had to place the crosshairs on target to click and drag a rectangular selection. Screen Capture + Print displays the selected area's size in pixels, a helpful touch. Releasing the mouse button copies the selection and produces a small dialog for selecting Clipboard, File, Print, or Cancel. Clicking File saves captured data as a JPEG in the Pictures folder. Right-clicking the tray icon opens Screen Capture + Print's menu, which lists the three main commands with hot key combos and opens the Help file, but it doesn't have any options like changing the destination directory.

Screen Capture + Print is quick and intuitive to use: Click, drag, and save (or print). If you need more, then tools with plenty of extras are available. Most of the time, however, what the app already offers is all we need.

    "Great, Easy to use Screen Shots"

    October 5, 2011  |   By 8.E_Z

    Version: Screen Capture + Print 1.9.5.3

    Pros

    Again Great Product. No install, unzip to a folder,

    Cons

    None that I have found

    Summary

    Put a copy of the .exe in your Start Folder, then it is in the toolbar. 2 clicks of the mouse you have the Screen Shot, many options on where and how you save it.

    "Just what I wanted."

    August 26, 2009  |   By pjlaycock

    Version: Screen Capture + Print 1.9.5.2

    Pros

    Another nice, simple little utility from the producers of "DirectoryListPrint". Again it is stand alone & can simply be deleted if you don't like it, no uninstalling required. I have found no problems/short comings with this FREE program (so far).

    Cons

    Like the "DirectoryListPrint" utility it is un-nervingly simple to use.

    "Free product does what it says on the tin"

    August 21, 2009  |   By DorsetDave

    Version: Screen Capture + Print 1.9.5.2

    Pros

    Prints out any area of your screen. Just click the icon in the quick launch and your mouse arrow turns into a cross which you can outline the area on the screen you want to print (or send to file or clipboard)

    Cons

    You have to extract the compressed files. You have to put it into your quick launch every session(as far as I could work out). It doesnt appear in Revo uninstaller or All Programs. When you want to print out just a small area it enlarges it.

    Summary

    Its free so you cant complain. I was using printscreen 32 before when I had XP but that doesnt work in Vista. That is a better program but this is OK as a simple print screen tool.Simple to use once youve worked out how to put it into your Quick Launch.
