Editors' review

Screen-capture utilities are ubiquitous, with an ever-growing number of alternatives to the built-in Windows capabilities. ScreenShot is yet another entry in this wide field of competitors. Although there's nothing about this program that particularly impressed us, it's not a bad choice if you need a basic screen-capture tool. Its unique interface may appeal to those who like their programs to be extremely straightforward.

ScreenShot consists of a resizable window with seven buttons across the top. The window itself is transparent, and you simply move and resize it to select the desired area of your screen. Once it's where you want it, click the Capture button; the window will hold the image of whatever was displayed at the time. There are also options to refresh, copy, and save images, and a clone feature lets you run multiple instances of ScreenShot. The program has no Help file, but this isn't a significant drawback, as its features are fairly easy to figure out. Overall, we thought that ScreenShot was an interesting take on the typical screen-capture utility format; we liked it that all of the program's features were contained within one easy-to-navigate interface, and it's useful to be able to refresh the capture and run multiple instances of the program if you need to capture ongoing changes on your screen. ScreenShot isn't as full-featured as some other screen-capture tools we've seen, but if you're looking for the basics, it's not a bad choice.

ScreenShot installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.

    "LOADS OTHER PROGRAMS THAT CAN'T BE UNINSTALLED"

    March 11, 2014   |   By Blackmask1959

    Version: ScreenShot 1.1

    Pros

    I did do one screen shot and it looks like it may work. That one pro is totally wiped out because this loaded two other programs on my computer!!!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    SAYS IT IS ADWARE/SPYWARE FREE...MAYBE SO BUT NOW I HAVE A PROGRAM CALLED OUTFOX TV THAT STARTS CONSTANTLY ALONG WITH BOTH GOOGLE AND IE BEING HIJACKED BY ANOTHER SEARCH ENGINE. UNINSTALLED OUTFOX.TV WITH THE UNINSTALL PROGRAM THAT IS INCLUDED BUT IT STILL RUNS. TRYING TO REMOVE SCREENSHOT BUT THERE IS NO UNINSTALL AVAILABLE (BUT I CAN DONATE). DO NOT DOWN LOAD THIS GARBAGE UNLESS YOU WANT AN INFECTED COMPUTER!!!!!!!!!

    Summary

    CAN SOME ONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHY THERE IS ALWAYS SOME SCREWED UP PROGRAM ATTACHED TO THE ONE YOU WANT? I WOULD HAVE DONATED. I DID TRY IT. IT LOOKED LIKE IT WOULD WORK GREAT. BUT NOW I'M GOING TO HAVE TO SPEND TIME TO REMOVE THE ADWARE/SPYWARE/MALWARE THAT WAS LOADED WITH THIS PROGRAM. CNET DOWNLOAD I AM WONDERING IF YOU REALLY DO LOOK AT THE PROGRAMS HERE. OR IF YOU DO LOOK, DO YOU EVER SEE WHAT IS ACTUALLY SENT TO THE END USER?

    "Quick, no-frills utility"

    April 16, 2013   |   By bob_peelstrom

    Version: ScreenShot 1.1

    Pros

    For the price, it's great. It is a GRABBER, _not_ an editor.
    It doesn't eat up RAM, and doesn't require you to establish a gazillion parameters.

    Cons

    None - but I've only used it for three years...

    Summary

    If you're the type who blindly installs and doesn't bother to examine the default additional "features" from sponsors, don't bother with this program. If you can suffer the indignity of having to un-check a couple of boxes, you'll be very pleased.

    Installed. Tried to capture an area. Software has an arbitrary minimum size for capture area which was bigger than I wanted to capture. Immediately uninstalled.
