What is Greenshot?
Greenshot is a light-weight screenshot software tool for Windows with the following key features:
- Quickly create screenshots of a selected region, window or fullscreen; you can even capture complete (scrolling) web pages from Internet Explorer.
- Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.
- Export the screenshot in various ways: save to file, send to printer, copy to clipboard, attach to e-mail, send Office programs or upload to photo sites like Flickr or Picasa, and others.
We love this tool to bits and its part of our standard install on every PC we set up for customers. Its simple to use (just press print screen) and 100% open source and free.
The feature we use most is the Greenshot image editor and the save to clipboard feature. This allows us to quickly create a screenshot, blur out sensitive information, annotate over it and then past it into emails, social media and even this knowledge base.
