Anybody know a good one?   Firefox lists lots of them but they never say how to use them so they are useless?   I used to have a good one but then it became a problem with unwanted stuff showing up?   Why do they have all these add ons with no way to know how to use them?

This is one of the major reasons I don't use very many browser based applications. Unless it is specific to that browser. I prefer stand alone apps.

I like Greenshot: http://getgreenshot.org

And

Sharex: https://getsharex.com

Use with any browser or without a browser to manipulate existing images on the computer.

I agree with what Animal had said, there are some stand alone ones, like, lightshot, greenshot, snagit, list goes on and on,

 

you can also take a screen shot with PrtSc (Print Screen) but you'd have to paste it into photoshop or paint or another image manipulation program, eg, gimp.

Thanks - I wasn't aware of this procedure with Print Screen.   Hopefully one of these stand-alones will work.

Snagit is also a good one but needs payment.

I can always count on you, Animal!  You never let me down.

I'll keep that in mind as a backup plan thanks.

You can also use the built-in applications.

For Windows, there is Snipping Tool. It capture the whole screen, a whole window, or parts of the screen (either rectangular selection or free form selection).

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13776/windows-use-snipping-tool-to-capture-screenshots

For Mac, there is Grab. Like snipping tool, it can capture the whole screen, a windows, or part of the screen. It also has a timed screen shot capture too.

Many third party apps will do that same things, but also might add additional features.

Thanks - its nice to have choices especially ones that actually FUNCTION as intended they are so much more productive than me tearing my hair out - I hate when I do that. 

 

I really appreciate all the suggestions - some work better in certain situations than others if I can't find one that works now I must be daft!

+1 on using the snipping tool of Windows 7.  For the occasional screen shot this is the way to go IMHO. No extra software install required and it does the job.

 

As an additional note pressing Print Screen will copy the full desktop which can be pasted into Paint. If you press Alt+Print Screen it will capture the active window only.

Software for desktop PC I'm using Screen Capture Utility. try these ones I hope you will never fedup again.

Thanks for the recommendations I will give those a try although I am thinking I used the Awesome Screenshot and had a problem with it but I may try it again.
