Quick screen captures are a luxury that is available to and affordable for just about anyone with a computer. In fact, in these days of ever-increasing software productivity, you would be hard-pressed to find a program for screen captures that doesn't allow you finish your work in a flash! Screen capture programs are awash in useful features that allow for optimal customization of your workspace.

One of the new components that enable quick screen captures is a modification-friendly toolbar. No longer will you need to search desperately though menus for the function you want. Easy to see and easy to hide, the toolbar can save you a lot of wasted time, keystrokes and mouse clicks. While you're likely used to toolbars on most of your applications, just remember for a moment what life was like without them!

Another useful tool for quick screen captures is a set of hot keys designed to do whatever it is you tell them to do. These keys are particularly useful for technical writers, who may not want to take their hands from the keyboard too often. Hot keys allow your work to flow more smoothly by keeping your fingers and mind focused. If you forget what your hot keys are, simply mouse over the toolbar for a reminder.

Uses of Quick Screen Captures

If you are new to screen captures, you may be wondering what all of the fuss is about. Screen captures are used for a variety of purposes, most of them educational or instructional. It's a lot easier to look over a screenshot than try to sort out a litany of computing terms. Such a statement is especially resonant now that screen captures are so simple to use!
