Hi there
Im after a recommendation for a better screen capture toll for Win7 (freeware)
Just something I can capture then print without having to save the screendump 1st , like in Win7's 'snipping tool'

I know there are hundreds out there, what are the better ones? Just something really basic

Well.......I use the Snipping Tool.
I did use Greenshot at work, that's nice and easy too.

The prtscreen button if you want snapshots, then run paint and crop what you dont want. Altho, obviously you have to copy and paste it. Then save it if you want to keep it

Not free but SnagIt is a very good bit of software, we use it for making IT docs at work.

You can try Lightshot - its free Download Here (http://app.prntscr.com/) it integrates with your print Screen Key - you hit print screen, the screen turns darker, and you drag out the box with the arrow that appears to select the area you want, then save, print, what ever.

Faststone Capture is very good.

Just tried Lightshot. I was using the snipping tool but Lightshot looks like a keeper.

Thanks, WT.
