Free software to capture images within a computer screen

PC Screen Capture is a lightweight and extremely efficient package that will help users to record the contents of a screen within a real-time scenario. Functioning similarly to other bundles such as Snagit or Greenshot, the main benefit in regards to this system is that it is absolutely free to download and install. It is supported by most Windows operating systems.

Core Features and Functions

PC Screen Capture will allow the user to record the contents of an entire page or to highlight those sections which he or she wishes to save as a separate image file. Unique drop-and-drag features are ideal when information needs to be saved within a short period of time. All controls can be found at a menu on the top of the page, so accessing basic functions is never a problem. Multiple file types such as .JPG, .BMP and .GIF are all supported.

Additional Options

Users can also choose to run PC Screen Capture directly from a USB stick as opposed to downloading the program onto their hard drive. It is possible to capture preselected areas of a page such as bookmarks, and address bar or a navigational menu. This system is ideal for troubleshooting websites or for sending specific image captures to friends.

  • so there is no charge during a download.
  • It will require a relatively small memory footprint.
