- Do you mean that you want to make a screenshot when using windows 7 ? If so, the use the build-in "Snipping Tool". You can peg/pin the program to the Windows 7 task bar.

I use Greenshot for Windows, and make it available for my people as well.

I should have been more clear.  I know about the snipping tool, but could not find a way to Edit once I got the screenshot.  What I wanted to ask, is about a screenshot tool that makes Edits easy, like Arrows, Rectangles, numbers etc.  Then will just Upload to my favorite Publishing site.  Went and looked at some but as usual there are many out there.  Will visit the ones mentioned here, thanks!

So do I, when running Windows. Most all brands of OS's ships with their own like tool.

ShareX does all that and even more.

Both Greenshot and ShareX does that.  In fact, the image editor in ShareX is actually Greenshot.  ShareX has more bells and whistles but Greenshot is more than sufficient for most users.  Both programs come in installer and portable flavors.  If you decide to give either program a try, I would recommend the portable version.  If you don't like the program, just delete its main folder and it's gone.  No need to uninstall.

I think "PcPunk" wants a program that not only takes a snapshot of the screen but also can add a number of things (arrows, etc.) and upload the picture as well.

 

Well, I use the snipping tool in combination with MS Paint & a stand alone version of MS Photo Editor.

He already said that is what he wants.  Read post #7.

I use Techsmith Snagit -- it's not free, but it's incredibly powerful and worth the $.

Aura, thanks for this, nice alternative to outdated MS Paint! :thumbup2:

 

Very feature rich, and last version was updated less than a week ago (as of this post). Don't know if it's just me, have never been able to get MS Paint to be useful for my needs, which are fairly much the same as the OP, which really should be simple, rather than complicated. The ones who'll get the most out of MS Paint are those whom has been using the accessory since it's creation, like back when shipped with a user guide & all. That's the trouble with many Windows extras, Microsoft is wrongly assuming that every user knows how to run all of these out of the box with precision (or that every Windows user has used these for the past 20+ years), would be fantastic to include a User Manual to those new to these features. 

 

 

 

 I know about the snipping tool, but could not find a way to Edit once I got the screenshot.  What I wanted to ask, is about a screenshot tool that makes Edits easy, like Arrows, Rectangles, numbers etc.

 

Otherwise, how can they blame us for needing 3rd party software that spells out what to do? :)

No problem cat :) ShareX fits your basic needs (screenshot and editing), but it offers so much more feature, and everything is also packed in a really nice GUI, that it would be a shame not to recommend it. I've been using it since the beta when it was still on CodePlex, and it never failed me.
