Screenshots done better with MWSnap

screenshot of MWSnap

We're always looking for a better tool to make screenshots with. Most operating systems have the built-in ability to capture as an image the entire display of a system, or to grab just the active window. If you're looking for much more than that, you're pretty much on your own.

There are some tools that let you define a region to grab—click and drag crosshairs on your screen—and even let you save the results into different graphical formats, such as BMP, JPG, PDF, and more.

MWSnap can do all these and more. Unlike many tools, you can grab the other "stuff" that you see on your screen that is often left out of screenshots. You can grab a menu, or an individual on-screen control. If you're showing somebody how a program works, or demonstrating an error for a developer, this extra ability can be most helpful.

No complex installation is necessary—just drop the app where ever you want it, and don't worry about messing up your system with a bunch of extra DLLs or Registry entries.

MWSnap is a free download. It's a Windows application and runs on any Win32 platform.
