After some searching and trying out programs for capturing different areas of the screen, I settled on Printscreen from www.gadwin.com/printscreen. Simple and free. Each area is saved in the folder of your choice.

Pressing Ctrl+Print Screen on the key board is even easyer. You did find the best print screen program out there in my opinion. But I personal don\'t use it because I can do the same with XP with out installing anything.

I don't know how this captures a defined area of the screen and then automatically saves it to a file and do again for a different area. What is it I don't know?

If you use alt +print scrn it will save a selected are to the keyboard, such as a popup or window.

I've tried alt ptr scrn and ctrl prt scrn, but it seems to me both do the same thing as prnt scrn alone, that is printing the whole screen to the clip board which you then have to edit using some picture editor like
Windows Paint. Whereas the softwear Printscreen lets you capture rectangular areas of your choice and save to a file of your choice.

Something's wrong there, alt +print scrn should only copy a selected client area.

So, what are the exact steps to define an area first?. And where is it saved? Type slowly because I read and think slowly.

Let's say you've opened regedit or internet options, or some application that doesn't take up the whole screen. When you hit alt +print scrn it should copy only the image of the application into the clipboard.

But with the printscreen program you can precisely select what you want to save and it goes where you want it and then select another area and it is saved with a different name automatically. Much better than just the prt scrn key with or without alt or ctrl. Try it.

Of coures you can do a few more advanced things with a program but most don't need those options. For those that do you have found the best.
