Capturing a screenshot of the computer/laptop screen is a necessary and basic need of every serious computer/laptop user . I have a tutorial related blog and mostly I need screen shots to explain what i want to convey in a better way to my blog readers . Because I believe that an image is always better that hundreds of words . And readers love with screenshots than text . Windows provides a built in feature to capture a screenshot . Just press PrtSc (Print Screen) button and paste it in Paint , Photoshop or any other software . This feature has been improved in Windows 7 and 8 . Whenever you press PrtSc (Print Screen) button it gets stored automatically in a folder . There’s no need to paste in any image processing software .
I used to this default feature to take screenshots for tutorials . No doubt this Windows default feature is very useful . But it has many shortcomings . A very big shortcoming is that you cannot set a desired area which you want to capture . Because of this shortcoming , lots of precious time gets wasted . So, I don’t use it anymore . Now I have discovered a very nice screen capturing software . And I am happy with its features and performance .
I thought , I should share it with my blog readers . My discovered screen capturing software is ABBYY Screenshot Reader .
