MWSnap: Free Screenshot Capture Utility for Windows

January 10th, 2007 · No Comments

Mirek’s Free MWSnap Windows Software is a small yet powerful Windows program for snapping (capturing) images from selected parts of the screen.

The current version is capable of capturing the whole desktop, a highlighted window, an active menu, a control, or a fixed or free rectangular part of the screen. I find it very handy for creating presentations, tutorials etc. You can configure keyboard shortcuts for the different kinds of screenshots you take, and it will save the picture files in a directory with serial order numbers!

MWSnap also contains several graphical tools: a zoom, a ruler, a color picker and a window spy, and a fast picture viewer or converter. Installation is real simple, and it works beautifully – did I mention you can even minimize it to the system tray, so it’s running in the background – ready to take screencaps when you bid it to? MWSnap is freeware, so no bugging “register now” or “buy now” messages, ever!
