Recommendations for software that can capture the entire screen, or specific areas of the screen, to an image file or online storage.

Screenshot software is any software that assists in the capture of data displayed by an electronic device.

The software can capture the entire visible screen, a portion of the screen, or even the portions of the screen that are not currently visible (but would be visible when the user scrolls the content).

Historically, this process was originally called "Print Screen" because the data was sent directly to a printer. Nowadays, data is generally saved to a local or network storage medium.
