Need a utility to take instant snapshot of a window.
I have various methods of grabbing images of windows-- Alt-PrintScreen, Irfanview (great freeware program!) and HandySnap. But what I really would like is a lightweight, freeware program that would clone a window with hot keystroke. In other words, you're looking at a window, you hit the hotkey(s), and now you have a frozen image of the window that you can keep on the desktop and use for comparing with other windows.
Has anyone seen anything like that?
Re: Need a utility to take instant snapshot of a window.
Thanks for the replies so far. I like MWSnap a lot. My only complaint is that it does not auto-size the viewer window after the capture is done. Irfanview does this, but has less flexible capture options (for example, you cannot draw arbitrary rectangle).
My ideal program would have several capture options (full screen, active window, user-defined) which are avaiable at any time with different hot key combos, then display the capture at actual size without a title bar or window frame, just some kind of border that lets you know it is not a live window.
