screen capture utility & multi-entry clipboard

Discussion in 'Windows 7' started by Yousuf Khan, Mar 18, 2010.

    I used to use a screen capture utility that you could use to capture
    various parts of the screen, such as the active window, a specific
    rectangle on the screen, etc. Each feature available with a different
    hotkey combo. It would then automatically save the picture to disk based
    on a customizable naming scheme. That utility no longer works under
    Windows 7. I know that Windows 7 comes with its own utility called
    Snipping Tool, but that's not really as convenient as my old utility,
    it's a bit pokey actually. Any free utils that you can suggest?

    Also I'm looking for a good free multiple entry clipboard recall
    utility. Something that you can capture stuff and it'll automatically
    remember them and you can pick and choose from a bunch of recent ones. I
    found a utility called PasteCopy.net, but I'm not too sure this one is
    for me. Any other suggestions?

    It may not be (entirely) her fault. It seems she's using some kind of
    web-to-Usenet gateway, and it's apparently not doing her any favors.

    If she's using a web interface to access Usenet then it's entirely her fault in my book !
    Doubly so if she's a Microsoft employee, she ought to know better. She doesn't even
    quote the message she's replying to.
    Hopeless! :)

    Thanks, this link had two utilities listed for clipboard extenders, one
    was PasteCopy.Net which was the one I had tried out previously and
    didn't like so much. In fact this one was a bitch to try to uninstall.
    Even after uninstalling it, it remained behind, I had to use the manual
    delete to get rid of it finally, and then I had eliminate its startup in
    the registry!

    However, the other utility suggested, M8 Freeclip is perfect! It's even
    better than my previous program that I was using under XP, so I'm going
    to put this one into my XP laptop too. Thanks!

    I haven't had a chance to try out the screen capture utils yet, so I'll
    give this one a try and let you know.

    I assumed she had something to do with Microsoft by the style of the post, no quoting
    the original post, not reading the original post and being 10 days behind everyone else.
    Who cares anyway. :)
