Editors' Review

+

When information comes across your screen that you do not want to forget, a screen capture is in order. While using inaccurate and confusing hot keys was once the preferred method, ScreenHunter Free offers an alternative that promises to simplify the process.

This free program has a simple interface that makes this operation surprisingly easy. The main screen is well spaced and intuitive enough to have new users making screen captures in no time. A menu along the top allows users to make screen captures now or to stand by. Along the left side of the screen are the buttons to toggle between options of where the capture comes from, where it is sent, and more advanced options. The Advanced and Send To options are fairly standard for this type of software, but the Capture From option is quite unique. On this screen, users can select a single hot key to take screen captures, as well as select whether they'd like a full-screen capture, capture a window, or simple a small rectangle (which brings up crosshairs that let you zero in on target).

ScreenHunter Free promises to make getting screen captures easier and we were pleased to find it lived up to this promise. The process is simple, the options are easy to manage, and the results are flawless. We highly recommend this download for all users.

"Good, stable software that does what it promises to do!"

July 02, 2010  |  By Jockster_CNET

 |  Version: ScreenHunter 5.1 Free 5.1.145

Pros

It is very stable, a breeze to use and does not hog system resources in standby mode. I have used this quite heavily for over a year.

Cons

I have not found any flaws with it.

Summary

Screenhunter sets out to do a limited set of tasks and perform them excellently. The settings are easy to understand. When in standby mode, it is there to take your screenshot at the click of a button. Very good and user-friendly!

"It's free and it works (at least partly)"

June 08, 2010  |  By mydh12

 |  Version: ScreenHunter 5.1 Free 5.1.145

Pros

Have used it 3 times. Took pics of full screen very nicely. It's free. I'm glad to have it and use it.

Cons

I couldn't get it to take shots of just the window. Tried 3 times.

Summary

I was glad to get and use it, especially since it's free, even though I could get it only to take shots of the entire screen

"Works for screen caps, not windows requiring scrolling."

May 11, 2010  |  By Kenlahar

 |  Version: ScreenHunter 5.1 Free 5.1.145

Pros

It's handy to have a scree capture at the press of one hot-key. This works well for screen captures and for captures of windows that don't require scrolling.

Cons

This product will not capture the full content of windows that require scrolling.

Summary

It's a basic program that does it's job well enough. I hope the creator updates it with a scrolling window capture.

"Pain in the but"

May 08, 2010  |  By son0fhobs

 |  Version: ScreenHunter 5.1 Free 5.1.145

Pros

Does the basic job, just not terribly well.

Cons

Not enough customization, features, or flexibility

Summary

I want a screen capture program that hides nicely in the background, and that it can save the files in different places every time. Anyway, great for others, just not flexible enough for me.

"It just works, nicely."

April 30, 2010  |  By JayScott

 |  Version: ScreenHunter 5.1 Free 5.1.145

Pros

You push an F-key, you tell it what you want captured, and it does it. Simple.

Cons

If you want a fancier graphic format, it won't do that. It does BMP, JPG and GIF. (I do a lot of fancy stuff including web design, and these have been adequate for me.)

It uses 12Mb of RAM in Standby (a little high).

Summary

It does what I want it to do, and it's free. I keep putting it on PCs (mine and others').

"Very easy to use, Ideal for a lot of screen capturing"

April 09, 2010  |  By toronto_xyz

 |  Version: ScreenHunter 5.1 Free 5.1.145

Pros

Very easy to use.
Very easy interface.
Set the preference as you like before screen capture, and the software will stick to that preference faithfully.
One button capture by shortcuts.
Its completely free

Cons

Nothing I can think of.

Summary

There are no hassles in using this application to capture screenshots. You can set your preference ahead of time. For me, who does a lot of screen captures, you can set your shortcut ahead of time, and select if you want to save the picture to clip board or file. Once you select it, you can capture the screen whereever you want, to any size you want, and it saves automatically. And there is no confirmation window or anything, so you can continue your work without being bothered. For me, that's the biggest perk. Other screenshot applications require you to push buttons and open and close windows, which are very annoying.
This software even comes with a zoom-in window around your cursor, so you can capture a rectangular area very precisely.

I can't think of any improvements that can be added on to this already fine software.
