7Capture for Screenshots

[ Default compared to screenshot with 7Capture ]

7Capture is a simple tool that solves two small problems I regularly face with the default Print Screen feature of Windows 7:

  1. Background that lies below the top window shows up in the window borders due to Aero transparency.
  2. Window corners do not appear curved because their border gets lost in the background colors.

7Capture fixes both of the above problems nicely. It is simple and stays out of the way. Just open it and press Print Screen on your keyboard to capture the entire desktop. Press Ctrl-PrintScreen to capture a given window. Note that this diverges from the normal Alt-PrintScreen behaviour to capture a window.

Tried with: 7Capture 1.2.0.21
