MWSnap is a small application that enables you to take snapshots from programs or any selected part of your screen. The program is free and very easy to use. It comes with hotkeys that will make it even easier to take a screenshot of any program, region and even of the entire screen. The captured areas can be saved to different image files. You will need to choose which format to save your files, once you have taken a snapshot. The formats supported are BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG and TIFF.
This program has all you need to take great snapshots. You will be able to take a screenshot of any program, picture or region of your computer by just using the program's hotkeys. For taking a screenshot of a program you're using, you just have to press Shift + Control + W. By pressing Shift + Control + D you can take a snapshot of your desktop.
You can create a tutorial with images using this application. The cursor can be hidden or shown by changing advanced settings. You can also set the software to 'autostart' with Windows. There are many advanced settings to configure your screenshots. The background color and background style can also be set. MWSnap runs well on the latest Windows platforms.
