The SnapShot screen capture tool lets users assign a hotkey on their keyboards to take instant screen shots of whatever appears on their desktops. These photos get saved automatically as JPG or PNG files, but users can opt for other file formats.
Those who wish to download SnapShot may do so for free at Bluefive Software's website. This tool works on Microsoft's operating systems from Windows 98 to Windows 10, and it downloads in a zip file for extraction. Users can set the program to open only when needed or allow it to run minimized in the taskbar. Screen shots are automatically saved and go directly to Microsoft Paint, or users can assign a different graphics editing program for customization of screen shots.
