Best Free Screenshot Software for Windows

Free Screenshot Software for WindowsInitially, creating screenshots seems to be quite a simple task – we all have a Print Screen button on our keyboards for that. However, for those who capture screens frequently this is not quite a convenient option. When you create a screenshot using the Print Screen button, either the full screen or an active window area is saved to your clipboard. If you want to save the selected area as an image file or be able to edit it, you’ll need to paste it into a decent photo editor.
