Simple-to-handle application which enables both power and novice users to capture a custom part of the screen with just a click of the button

editor's review




Taking a screenshot nowadays can be achieved in a large number of ways, starting from the print screen option or the snipping tool provided by Windows, and one of the many third-party products out there.

ZapGrab is a very tiny utility aimed at taking screenshots of your desktop screen. It is extremely lightweight and it is addressed to all user categories.

The upper hand of a portable app

It does not require installation and thus, you should know that the Windows registry is not going to be affected in any way. In addition to that, you can take it anywhere with you, by simply moving the program files to a USB thumb drive, or other similar removable storage unit.

Straightforward GUI and how to work with it

ZapGrab features a minimalistic interface, which ensures that all types of users can handle it without encountering any kind of issues. It hosts two buttons: one for grabbing pictures and one for exiting the application.

It enables you to select the part of the screen that interests you in order to capture it, and with the help of the “Ctrl+V” keyboard shortcut, you can easily paste the resulted snapshot to a third-party application, such as Paint, Adobe Photoshop and the list goes on.


To be truthful, even though it was designed as a simplistic approach to screen capturing, there is little to be said about Zapgrab’s functionality. It is extremely simple, works without hindering the computer’s performance and without popping up errors or crashes. However, the fact that a third-party item is required is a pretty significant setback.
