ScreenMaster features


Often, PC users have a question - how to capture screenshots from the screen? To do this, press PrintScreen key on your keyboard and paste a screenshot into MS Paint editor. However, mouse cursor will not be shown on the screenshot. Also, this method is inconvenient if you need to capture multiple screenshots, without being distracted by unnecessary actions: opening the editor, pasting the screenshot, cutting the desired area of the screen, entering file name when saving.

For these reasons, for quick, auto screen capture, we suggest using ScreenMaster screenshot capturing program.
