    Lightshot is the easiest way to take screenshots as well as to save them on your computer or share them with friends, on forums etc

    I've heard of Lightshot, but have never used it before. How is the quality of the images? I thought someone had mentioned that it wasn't so good. Not sure.

    Oh I see, it's a program to install. Probably more for someone who is super serious for taking screenshots. :#

    Wow, I never knew! That's kind of cool I guess. A good solution for PC users. :) I only say that because the latest update for Mac gave us some pretty sweet screenshot tools. B)

    (ANDROID v4.2 or higher screen recorder) Mobizen
    (ANDROID vLollipop 5 or higher screen recorder) AZ Recorder or Lollipop Screen Recorder

    (iPhone or iPad) Unfortunately, Apple doesn't allow any applications to record video your iOS device's screen except screenshot

    Best screen recorder out there that's free from what I've seen. It's clean, has a ton of options like setting FPS, bit rate, and has no watermark. No time limits either. I use it all the time.

    Hi everyone,

    I made a few small changes to the thread this morning. A few of the sections have been cleaned up with a little more clearer understanding and direction. I also included support for taking a screenshot with an Apple Watch.

    Cheers!

    Taking a screenshot on Windows XP and prior Windows versions
    This method works on Windows Vista and Windows 7 as well.
    1. Click the window you want to capture. Press Alt+Print Screen by holding down the Alt key and then pressing the Print Screen key. The Print Screen key is near the upper-right corner of your keyboard. (Depending on the type of keyboard you have, the exact key names on your keyboard may vary slightly.)
    Note: If you so choose, You can take a screen shot of your entire desktop rather than just a 
    single window by pressing the Print Screen key without holding down the Alt key
    
    2. Click Start, click Accessories, and then click Paint.
    3. In the Paint window, click Edit, and then click Paste.
    4. When the image appears in the Paint window, crop if you wish. Once finished, click File, and then click Save As.
    5. In the Save As dialog box, in the File name box, type a name for the screen shot, and then click Save.

    Taking a screenshot on Windows Vista and Windows 7
    All previous Windows versions press "Print Screen" on keyboard and paste into the Paint program. If you so choose, you can do this on Vista and 7 as well.
    1. Open the Snipping Tool by clicking the Start Menu, All Programs, Accessories, and then Snipping Tool.

    2. Once you've opened the Snipping Tool, you can choose to take a variety of different types of screen captures. These include (1) "Hand-drawn" - ie drawn with the mouse, or the tablet pin on a tablet pc; (2) rectangle - which allows you to draw a rectangle to capture a specific area of your screen; (3) "active window" - which records only the window which is selected when you take your screenshot or (4) "full screen" -which takes a full screen shot, identical to what you would get by pressing the print screen button on a keyboard.

    3. Finally, you can save your image as a GIF, bitmap, jpeg, or html file by selecting "save as" or select "send" to send the image as an email attachment. Still have questions? (Watch This!)
