Howies Funware
Screen Capture
Software

Howies Funware Screen Capture Software is the greatest - we love it.

When installed on a MS Windows box, you can set up a folder in the user's MyDocuments called Screen Shots and then set Howies Funware to send all screen shots to this folder for ease of locating screen shots later.

We change the default setting to save all screen shots as a .jpg and make the PAUSE button the trigger for taking the screen shots.

The CodingCREW and our customers love this little program, it has low overhead and does a great job.
