Editors' reviewScarce on features, this monitoring tool only captures screenshots. ScreenLog's interface is nothing fancy, though it is easy to use and conveniently requires no installation. You can select a directory to save screen captures and determine when to start and stop logging. The program gives you control over the monitoring schedule when it comes to recording frequency, or you can simply start it at system start-up. ScreenLog saves captured images in JPEG format, though some other choices would have been nice. Sadly, no other features are offered that would put this program on par with more competitive monitoring applications. On a side note, ScreenLog requires the Java environment to operate, so expect your PC to run a bit sluggishly. Overall, this freeware program maneuvers rather well for users who only want screenshots as their sole monitoring tool, but it isn't difficult to locate a more extensive monitoring tool that has more capabilities.
ScreenLog Version 1 can be used to keep a visual log of activities on your computer. You can specify how often you want screenshots to be taken, specify a date and time to start and stop taking screenshots, and view the screenshots as good quality JPEG images. JPEGs are named based on the date and time at which the screenshots were taken, and saved in a directory of your choice. ScreenLog Version 1 is also completely hidden from the user, thus ensuring hassle free monitoring. ScreenLog Version 1 can be used as a personal diary to record your own activities on the computer, or it can be used to keep an eye on what your kids are doing on the computer.
