It's just a fact of life that if you spend enough time working with a computer, you're going to need to do a screen capture. Whether something's gone sideways with your system and you're looking for help from Tech Support, or you want to document your work with a picture of what it looks like onscreen, that screenshot is going to be a big help to you.

On your Mac, it's easy to grab a screenshot, but on your Windows box, it's always a bit of a kludge. It's easy to save the image to your clipboard, but then you have to open a graphics program to paste the image into a file, and then save it to your desktop. Kind of a mess. Dedicated tools can make the whole process much more efficient.

ScreenHunter is a free tool that lets you capture what you see on your monitor. Grab the whole screen, the active window, or just a rectangular selection. Save it directly into an image file, cutting-out all the foolishness of opening an additional application. And it stays out of your way, sitting as an icon in your System Tray. Or to make things really easy, you can have it start up every time your boot Windows.

ScreenHunter is a free Windows application. It should run under Win 98/NT and later.
