18 Window Clippings
This is just the ticket for capturing screenshots in Vista. It’s simple to use, can save to an array of formats and includes a particularly important feature for capturing screens – the ability to capture shadows.
To use it, press the Print Screen key, click the window you want to capture and then double-click. You can instruct the program to prompt you each time to tell it where you want to save a file, or you can designate a specific folder to receive all screenshots.
For basic screen captures, the free version works fine. But if you want to capture a mouse pointer, snag specific areas of your screen, or use a timer for taking screenshots, it will cost you about $US10.
