New free and easy to use screenshot software for Windows XP and Vista

February 25, 2009 by Victor · 4 Comments 

We at Screen Capture News like to write about interesting software releases that allow us to do new things in the field of screen capture and recording. Screen Capturer, however, does nothing but the most simple operations, and we like that too.  If you are still saving a lot of screenshots using the traditional PrintScreen button method, you’d know how annoying it is to open up an image editing application each time that you want to transfer it from a clipboard to a file (in Windows XP).

Screen Capturer is a 100% free application that is launched automatically whenever you press your PrintScreen button.

Screen Capturer allows you to:

  • Capture your entire screen, part of the screen, or a window on your screen.
  • Create an image file out of the screen capture in many formats, including BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG and TIFF.
  • Capture a video of your screen activity in .WMV (Windows Video) format.
  • Send the captured image or video directly to the Windows clipboard, an Image/Video file, e-mail, or to print from the printer.

Of course, this program isn’t going to give you advanced editing or annotation functionality or provide you with many more options than what is listed above. Sometimes, however, all you need to get the task done is something simple, and Screen Capturer does that job perfectly.

EDITORS NOTE (27/10/2009): It looks like the program is no longer offered for free. Please have a look at our Software section for more similar free solutions.
