Some people might not remember the old days when the "Imp Pant" key actually printed whatever there was on the screen. Today that key doesn't seem to work by itself anymore, you need to go to an image editor in order to use it. PrintKey2000 gets you back to the old days, getting screen captures from the desktop is extremely easy with this very handy application.
This compact program easily takes a capture of whatever you want on your desktop, including a selected area or a selected window. You can edit it on the go and save it without further hassle.
It comes with a nice set of user options, such as Hotkeys, footer text, Autocapture, timer and many others. You can some modify picture options such as color, seize, brightness, depth. Sometimes a change in the program's configuration may cause the program to crash, butPrintkey2000 has an option to reset registry and configuration options, solving all the problems you might have with the program.
Version 5.1 is no longer supported, but its completely free and its just over 500KB, it cannot get any better than this.
