Screen Capturing Program?

Hello, guys,

I need to capture a few screenshots from Outlook Express to walk through a relative in setting her POP3 email account. I used to just use the 'Print Screen' key, but my new keyboard doesn't have that anymore. Are they any good programs to do this, preferably free? All help will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

What? Your new keyboard doesn't have the Print Scrn button? Which kb's that?

There are load of screen captures out there, just do a search at download.com. I like Capture Express, no freaking logos of the software on every pic you capture.

Just hit the Print Screen button and then paste that into your favorite picture editor.

I use ScreenPrint32. It's free and works better than most of the other screen capture programs I've tried.

I'd also recommend Snag-it. It's easy to use, and worth the full version.

Why not just google it. I'm sure there is a tutorial just for this thing already on the web, pictures and all.

Because forums are for the lazies and Google is for people who like to help these lazies. It's a win win situation, both party get to jack-up their post count. Woohoo.

But kidding aside, thanks for the SnagIt recommendation. I just bought the full version for leeching web pages. No more individual image downloads. Sweet.
