Screengrab add on problem

  Muergo 12:58 24 Mar 2011

I can't find where Screengrab puts the grabbed screens, the home page says it's not taking any more postings under FAQ but there's an option to save to JPEG or PNG (Papua New Guinea?)

All I want is to print a screenshot without the whole content, i.e. just the visible portion, but where does it put them or am I better off using "printscreen" on my keyboard which doesn't respond at present.

I assume you are using the CTRL +Print Screen buttons for your screen grab.

Simply open your word processor and paste into that for the full screen or open your graphics editor (if you have one) and paste into that, then edit.

What version of Windows are you using? If it's 7, you'll find the Snipping Tool very easy to use, and judging by your description it does exactly what you want. Grab any part of the screen that you want and save it (or paste it) wherever you want.

Sorry, I didn't explain properly, I refer to the Firefox "Screengrab" add on which is supposed to give the options of whole screen or just bits of it.
Also "Control plus PrtScn on my keyboard does noyhing, it's a Microsoft 600 wired board.

Thank you Nontek, I have downloaded Fastone and as you say it does a lot more than Screengrab. Didn't ask for payment.

Thanks Pineman, I am running W7 Home, I'll have to see where Snipping Tool is buried.

... 'cos it is the Free version.

Starting to use it after rebooting I get popup screen saying it's a 30 day trial.
We shall see what happens, after I've used it for a month and they come on with a "only pay $5" as others do.

Like Nontec says there is a "free" version but it is an older one,i downloaded a week ago.
I have v5.3.
I forget the link but will search.

Thanks both of you, I'll come back to this posting after my 30 days is up, they may have made a newer one by then.

I must say, having done a few Fastone grabs, it is very good, has far too many applications for me, the other problem is the small size of icons but I'll get around that.
