Hello All,

I am very disappointed with the quality of the print screen function that is native to Windows 10, and I am looking for a nice quality tool that can take some high resolution screen captures of my desktop and windows. In Linux I use a tool called Shutter which works perfectly and wonderfully. I am looking for something similar for Windows, and nothing to crazy expensive.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Rocky Bennett

Use the Snipping tool. I am not sure if it will meet your needs though. Was this the print screen function you mentioned?

The best screenshot program with multiple features that allow you to do anything you want in my opinion in ShareX.

I use Greenshot in Windows.  It doesn't work under Wine so I am forced to use Shutter in Linux.  To me, I find it's superior to Shutter.  As mentioned by Aura, ShareX is another good screenshot program.

Thanks to everyone for the replies.

 

JohnC, thanks, I didn't even know about that snipping tool, I will try that.

 

Aura and Agouti, thanks for the recommendations. I will look at both of those tools.

 

Thanks all.

I like PicPick.

 

I did try ShareX, but find it a bit too complicated for what most people need to do with screenshots. A bit buggy as well.

 

PicPick has a lot of features similar to ShareX, but much simpler. But, I do agree ShareX is very complete.

You're welcome.

 

I am curious.  What does screen capture have to do with the audio and video?

Rocky just posted this thread in the wrong section. I reported it so a Moderator can move it in the All Other Applications section.

Thanks Aura, my logic was skewed when I chose this section. Also I chose ShareX as my screen capture tool and I really like it. Thanks to all who have posted.

Ahh... Yes, I understand now.  And yes, ShareX is one of the best screen capture tools around.  Glad you like it.

I'm using this tool. It interface is very broad with various screenshot modes on it. It's easy to perform.

The program that was endorsed by Bleeping Computers as soon as I logged on has worked great for me. "A Thousand Words" has helped me several times to copy just the pop up window that you get showing you the results of troubleshooting and other things. It really is a good tool.

Is there anyway that I can do a screen capture of my Grub Boot loader? There are certain things that change on my Boot loader on a regular basis and I would like to capture these changes with a screen shot.

Unless you find a way to install a screenshot software in the GRUB environment, you'll have to take pictures with a camera or your cellphone. So no, I don't think that you can.
