Ok folks, I want to introduce you to my best friend, my right hand man, Printkey. Printkey is a freeware program that I have been using since 1998. That's right, for 10 years. It is a tiny program that, once you execute it, sits in your system tray and waits for you to need it.
So what does it do? It allows you to take screen captures of whatever you are looking at your monitor, and quickly save them as some form of image file. In fact, you can even crop and edit them to suit your needs. You simply hit your "PrtScn" key, and you hear an audible "snap" of a typewriter key, and the program pops up with a picture of your desktop, which you can then edit to your heart's content. Once you get the hang of cropping, you will be able to open up any image on your computer, hit your PrtScn button, crop the picture down to any part you wish, and save as a brand new image. INCREDIBLY easy.
I LOVE this thing. I have used it repeatedly...a thousand times in ten years. And it's free. I have created a download link, and I hope it brings you as much joy as it has me.
After you click below, next click on the "free user" button, and simply wait for the resulting clock to run out. Then click on the download link. Good Luck!
