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.

    "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
