Simple Print Screen Alternative
I know some people who like how basic the Print Screen functionality is when it comes to taking screenshots, but they also wish that it was a little bit easier to save a screenshot to a file.
Generally the process involves pasting the screenshot into Paint, and saving it from there. That’s quite a few extra steps it takes. If that sounds familiar you may want to turn your attention to the free Purrint utility.
Whenever you take a screenshot using the Print Screen key (including Alt+PrintScr for an active-window screenshot) you’ll be prompted with options to copy the screenshot to the clipboard, print it, or save it to a file (bmp, png, jpg, gif).
If you are going to install something to help with screenshots why wouldn’t you go for one of the more advanced screenshot utilities? Well, it uses less than 0.5MB of memory. That’s impressive, and extremely useful for anyone running a system that has limited resources or anyone that falls into a “very frugal” category.
Works in any version of windows since Win95, and it’s only 114.
