ScreenHunter 5.1 free is a screen capturing application that allows users to save images of the desktop in three different ways. These are:
• Rectangular Area – In this capture mode, the application captures a rectangular area of the desktop set by the user.
• Active Window – The program records the active window on the desktop.
• Full Screen – In full screen capture, the software records the entire desktop window.
With the application, users can record the mouse pointer, too. Another feature of the program is copying the captured image to the clipboard. Users can also set the output format to GIF, BMP, or JPG. In addition, users can also rename the file before saving.
The application’s main window is simple and intuitive. Users can start the capture process by pressing on a hotkey. The capture mode can be set on the main window as well. ScreenHunter also has a delay timer so that users can prepare the desktop before the capture process starts. The software also offers advanced settings for more experienced users. Some of the general settings include showing screen tips, hiding the icons on the system tray when recording, and hiding the disabled buttons. The program also comes with a comprehensive help file that users can read to learn and utilize features of the software.
