Editors' Review

+

ScreenHunter Free makes the already facile task of screenshot grabbing that much easier through its versatility, flexibility, and organization.

Pros

It doesn't have to be a full screen: Screenshots are often used to illustrate step-by-step instructions, and in these cases, the ScreenHunter Free's cropping function shines. Here users can grab just one window or a small section of the screen without having to manually crop it from a photo file of the entire screen -- an especially useful feature for those of us with dual monitors.

Easy to use: Streamlined options make this program easy to use.

Easy storage: Creating and saving screenshots can be done quickly with this light program, making the process much quicker as it cuts out the need to paste the shot into MS Paint, Photoshop, or other graphic editing software.

Cons

Dated graphics: While the interface is clean and easy to use, the setup and graphics are a bit dated and cheesy.

Bottom Line

ScreenHunter proves that well-designed software really can improve even the easiest of tasks. The app's hook is how easy it makes capturing entire screen shots, single windows, or even one specific area.

November 09, 2014  |  By janet.langolf

Pros

Free, simple to use

Cons

Pay attention during installation. It is packaged with products you may not want that will install if you do not change the default settings.

I used to use this, but will not any more! I reinstalled it several times recently and it changes search functions, installs extensions in chrome, hijacks other browser functions.

"Great Little App!"

March 30, 2014  |  By Sue Geek

 |  Version: ScreenHunter Free 6.0.229

Pros

Easy to use.

Cons

None, so far.

Summary

Sometimes the key combos for Windows Vista don't always work as far as putting a halfway decent screen capture onto the clipboard. That's why I got this wonderful handy dandy little app. I especially like the added option of either including or excluding mouse sprite/pointer in the screen capture. Wonderful!

"New free ScrHunt is no better than the old free version"

March 09, 2014  |  By 9344429000076

 |  Version: ScreenHunter Free 6.0.229

Pros

ScreenHunter is an easy way to capture what's on your screen

Cons

CNET downloads are tricky

Summary

I've been running a free version of Screenhunter 4 for years & it has been handy & trouble-free. I wanted to see if the later version gave sharper & manipulatable scrren prints. It didn't. I bought ScreenHunter 6 Pro & I like it. The download of the free version was like walking through a minefield if you wanted to avoid having a new home page & a host of unwanted features. CNET has to do this to get revenue but you have to be sober & alert when you download stuff from CNET.

"Wonderful Photo Capture Program....Good Version"

February 28, 2014  |  By fredg06

 |  Version: ScreenHunter Free 6.0.229

Pros

Works GREAT. Can be set to Bitmap, JPEG, or others, and can be set to put your photo or capture to any folder you wish. Will capture from Anywhere!!

Cons

NONE; could not work any better.

Summary

I agree with another person's review......KEEP CLICKING ON "DECLINE".
This is a "bundled" software, full of about 5 other programs, but it offers you a "decline" button for all of them.
I had no problems with any other programs being installed, after about 5 clicks on "decline"!!
PLEASE read the install window as you go. If you don't want all the "bundles", just click on "decline". You will get to the install button afterwards.

Updated on Feb 28, 2014

Again, Please READ the install windows !!!!!

"Works flawlessly, no issues with "malware" or "junk""

February 16, 2014  |  By TRIPLEJAY

 |  Version: ScreenHunter Free 6.0.229

Pros

Previous posts complained of extra, unwanted junk being installed with SCREENHUNTER, but if you pay attention and read the various screens during install you can simply 'decline' any or all of the add-ons. I have had no issues with the program, it works as promised, and the editor rating is justified

Cons

None I have found, if you pay attention during install.

"Installs Malware"

February 04, 2014  |  By CS7711

 |  Version: ScreenHunter Free 6.0.229

Pros

I had this installed on my computer years ago, and it works well. However, tried to reinstall it a few weeks ago and it has MALWARE.

Cons

Installs something called Link Looker and the conduit toolbar. Resets all your browsers home pages and redirects your search to the conduit search. Eventually managed to get them off my system so I hope that was the only thing on it.

Summary

Do not install
