In many situations, it is a good idea to create a snapshot of exactly what is on your computer screen and a number of programs are able to do it well, but Gadwin PrintScreen is an excellent tool which makes the task a piece of cake.
As the program name might suggest, the default hotkey for creating a screenshot is with the "Print Screen"/"PRTSCN" button.
The program offers several useful options, one being a delay which can be set before creating a screenshot; it can be anything up to 1 minute, in seconds.
The interface of Gadwin PrintScreen after taking a snapshot includes a menu bar at the top which includes Zoom, Pan, Fit to Window and Full Screen Preview. Screenshots may be from the entire screen or just certain regions or windows.
The settings of this program include a long list of customizations -- anything from application defaults like starting with Windows and removing from the system tray to hotkey customizations and post-capture options for dealing with screenshots after they've been created.
Saving images can be in all of the common formats (BMP, PNG, GIF, TIF and JPG) and can also be copied to the Windows Clipboard in case you're interested in pasting them into graphics editing software like Adobe Photoshop.
Overall, Gadwin PrintScreen is a useful and intuitive graphics capture program which is easy-to-use while offering all of the standard tools one might expect in such a program.
