A simple but efficient application that allows you to capture your entire screen or the active window and save the snapshot to your computer as a BMP, PNG or JPEG file

editor's review





Howie's Quick Screen Capture is a simple-to-use program designed to help you capture the screen or active window.

There shouldn't be any issues in getting around the interface since it contains few elements.

Once Howie's Quick Screen Capture has been initialized, you can use the PrintScreen key or the custom one to take snapshots.

The "Preferences" area allow you to set the image directory, name and format (BMP, PNG, TIF, JPEG) and change the grab key.

But you can also configure bit depth options, disable the screen capture sound effect and set the timer interval (in hours, minutes and seconds) if you plan to use it.

The timer can be helpful if you share your computer with multiple users and want to check up on your screen's activity, or if you want to capture multiple frames from a movie.

The application uses a very small amount of CPU and system memory, so it shouldn't be a burden on any computer. The help section contains simple guidelines and tips for first-time users.

No errors have popped up during our tests and Howie's Quick Screen Capture didn't freeze or crash. Too bad it cannot be set to minimize to system tray but this is a minor concern. All in all, we strongly recommend Howie's Quick Screen Capture to all users who are looking for a straightforward application.
