    Or Alt/Print Scrn for the current Window. Both capture to the Clipboard. Open your Graphics Package and Paste as new image/selection

    Here you go... http://www.gadwin.com/products.htm get Gadwin print screen...FREE...can pretty well set it to do what you want and the format to save, you can even define the size of the screen you want to save in advance plus it will capture a page from a game if you want :) no spyware..no ad's

    also, paint shop pro has a capture mode (screen, area, client, window). Makes capturing anything on the screen easy as pie. :D

    I used PrintKey for several years and liked it, but I found I was using the capture mode in Irfanview all the time and uninstalled PrintKey. I’ve also tried Snagit and other capture programs. The capture is slightly faster if you keep the capture program active in the tray, but once you capture in Irfanview you have a lot more options than you have with the dedicated capture programs. And I like to keep the active programs to a minimum without superfluous stuff in the tray.

    mafuka Just right click on the link to the video and select “Save target as”.
