Purrint is a snipping tool that enhances the features of the standard Windows print screen utility.
As you probably know by now, almost every keyboard in the world comes with a “print screen” key that’s supposed to let you take advantage of the print screen feature integrated into Windows.
The purpose of this lightweight application is actually very simple: it enhances the overall functionality of this particular tool by offering users a great pack of features, such as auto-saving and auto-printing.
First of all, Purrint places an icon in the Windows System Tray that provides access to the configuration screen, but also lets you take a screenshot with a single click or open the previously-made screen capture.
The options menu however allows you to set up the auto-save feature, which automatically saves a new screenshot in a user-defined folder. The application supports three different formats, namely JPG, BMP and PNG.
What’s more, Purrint can also copy the screenshot to clipboard all by itself every time the print screen button is pressed or even print it using the default printer. If you’re not okay with these settings, you can configure the program to prompt for an action after a new screenshot is made.
Although it’s supposed to run all the time, Purrint runs on very low system resources and doesn’t affect computer performance at all.
All things considered, if you’re looking for an easy to use snipping tool that doesn’t assault you with plenty of features, Purrint is an excellent piece of software. On the other hand, you’re only allowed to take full screen screenshots, so you can’t capture just a specific screen region or an active window.
