Possible screen capture going on

Q: Possible screen capture going on

When pasting into a gmail "compose" a screenshot that I didn't take pasted, as if I took the screen shot and pasted it myself. I was trying to paste text I had just copied. It occured over and over for some time before retuning to normal paste. Most alarming is that the screenshot was of when KeePass was open and it was included in the screenshot although no passwords were visible. The two DDS files are attached.
DDS (Ver_2012-11-20.01) - NTFS_AMD64

You can use the Snipping tool:

Open the Snipping Tool.

Next open the menu you want to capture.

With that menu open press Ctrl and Print Screen .

I know that Ctrl+Print Screen will capture the whole screen and that Alt+Print Screen will capture the active most forward window. Here is my problem:

Many of the screens I wish to capture involve right clicking or displaying a menu-item. It is very, very difficult to do Ctrl+Print Screen or Alt+Print Screen while holding and clicking with a mouse (my Print Screen key on this keyboard is way over above my numeric pad and I have small hands). Does anyone know of any shortcuts or ways to do this that don't involve me needing three hands?

While I can get such approval, I'd rather not have to jump through those hoops if it isn't 100% necessary. Also, being a small business, most of the freeware/shareware licenses require commercial purchase for commercial use anyway.)

Screen capture software, such as what is built in with Windows of "snipping tool"....... what do you use and what do you like about it?

Free, opensource, paid, etc. Doesn't matter, explain why you like what you use.

Anyone aware of anything where you can CTRL + C and then CTRL + P into a Windows Explorer folder and it will create a PNG or JPG file and then you simply rename it?

A:Screen Capture - What do you use?

Windows + PrintScreen = full screen, Alt + PrintScreen = current window

Aside from that if I need something specific I'll just capture it all then crop it down after pasting it into Paint or Paint Shop Pro 7.04 'cause it's fast and I can do it in a few seconds start to finish. I know what the snipping tool is and I have honestly never used it, not once.

I can't imagine using a third party application just to do a screen capture when that functionality has been built-in for so long it's not even funny.

Hello all!
Ever since I joined the HJT Training Program, I have been longing for a good screen capture program. Yes, I know I can use Shift+PrintScrn and paste it into paint, but when you make screenshots regularly, that is kind of a pain.

Another thing that would be nice would be video capture of the display, but in such a way that would be easy to dump on youtube.

The only program that I have found is FRAPS, which does much more than I need, and is $100, which I am not prepared to spend on a image capture program.

Oh, and I'm on Vista Ultimate 32Bit.

Hi, I've been using photoscape, a free program that edits photos for years and using it for screen captures. Well, I noticed that every time I tried to do a screen capture with it since yesterday the program would disappear from view, not get the screen capture and only be showing in the processes. I assumed there was something specifically wrong with the program after several attempts and having to end the process, as it was frozen. So, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Same problem. So, trying to screen cap a frozen frame on a streaming video I downloaded another program, another free program, to do it called screencapturer. Same prolem. Program disappears from view, no capture takes place. Exactly the same. So, I downloaded a firefox browser application that is meant to take screen captures. This time it worked, except it only gets the non-video portion of the page. The box or window with the video only shows up blacked out. I'm used to that happening with certain screen capture programs not getting the image in a video box but my tried and true capturer for the same purpose, the Photoscape, what could be causing that and the other program to be incapable of getting a cap of a video all of a sudden? Thanks for any input. I'm not away of any change to my system since the last time I tried to use the program for this either.

Often I will see a photo while searching the internet and want to save it. Lately I have been using an excellent program called MW-SNAP.

I have expierimented with various "save-as" settings and have always chosen the options for best quality and although the pictures aren't too bad... there is still some of what I call "banding". The colors appear somewhat like a gradient... and you can see the different shades of color in a graduated pattern.

I am looking for a good screen capture program so I can record video of the desktop.

Unlike many people who need something like this I need specifics.

1. Must be able to capture a full 1920x1080 display at a decent frame rate preferably 60 fps.

2. Must also be able to capture video in the highest possible quality.

3. Must be able to record "what you hear".

I want to record some tutorials for photoshop and other adobe apps and some for video editing software like sony vegas. This calls for the highest quality I can get really because the vids will be offered in full HD. I need the audio for the obvious reasons.

So far I have tried fraps with monitor aero desktop enabled and a variety of different setting. While it does capture in awesome quality it does not do it with a good frame rate. I get the choppiest video you have ever seen. It also has issues with 2 displays enabled. I only want to capture one not both and I don't want to disable one to do so.

I also tried snagit 10. Also good quality but poor results. Much like fraps it is resulting in choppy video. It is able to capture one full display by clicking on that region before recording which is great if it would work right.

I know this machine has the horsepower to do this so it is not a matter of not having the brute strength. It could be a matter of me not knowing what settings to use though.

Camtasia which I have used years ago back on version 5 has actually come a long long ways. I am not beyond giving any particular software multiple chances to impress me.

Going back to camtasia this is what I found. Within less time than it takes to instal the program you can also learn basically everything you need to know about it. In under 1 minute I was able to make a test recording and play it back with outstanding results.

I was impressed by the way the application was able to recognize my main display the one i want to record on that is. Select it and also place the recording controls exactly where I would have placed them in the bottom corner of the secondary display. Seriously they thought of everything you would need.

I was impressed by how easy it was to output my video exactly the way I want it and with so little effort I was unsure it would get everything right. It did and it did it in record time at that.

You really couldn't ask for more from a piece of software. It is that damned easy and fast to use. I am totally happy with this and I imagine others would be also.

My test recording was absolute quality and with perfect speed. No loss of quality full 1080 HD. The resulting file is light for full HD as well. You can also do ALL of your edits within the app... Read more

Hello all. First time poster here!
I have read other threads about screen capture issues. Either I'm missing the point or my problem has not been discussed in this forum. So hopefully I'm not duplicating efforts. If I am, I apologize. Limited IT experience and understanding.
First, I'm working with Microsoft XP Professional on a Dell.
I was working on a project and needed to obtain some screen captures of websites.
I started up the computer. Got to work. The frist two screen captures were taken and edited using MS Office Picture Manager without a hitch. Then I went to my thrid screen capture. Everything appeared to work fine until I got on the third screen capture. For some reason I could not bring up my screen capture. I pressed alt+print screen and then went to Pic Manager, selected "Edit" but the "paste" was not available.
I rebooted (always my first step in resolving issues) and I was able to get one screen capture into Pic. Manager and edit it. But nothing worked after that. I'm not sure where the issue is rooted. I remember using an application called DSUtilities when I used to work on Windows 2000 (I believe...) but I don't see that program anymore. Has it been phased out? Is there a step I'm missing here?
Any help would be appreciated. I hope I have provided enough information to garner some help. Thanks Tech Support Forum.

Hi all
I was just wondering if there was anyway of preventing people from capturing a screen image..

You can disable the mouse context menu (normally the right mouse click - or left if you've swapped the default mouse options) on an image to stop people from downloading it but I don't think you can prevent anybody from using the PRT SCR button or programs like snagit or the snipping tool to capture an image.

I'd like to do this since I want to issue some powerpoint lecture notes containing some pictures of propietary material which can be publicly viewed -- but I don't want these pics to be copied and possibly appear on other web sites.

Some type of internal "scambling" or encryption software would be great so that even if one did capture the screen via PRT SCR then on inserting the capture into another document it would just come out as garbled.

Any ideas anyone or is this just not possible.

(Of course the old fashioned way of actually taking a photo of the screen would always overcome any software scrambling / encryption or even using the screen capture on a Linux host machine running a Window Guest Virtual machine in "Windowed mode" - but I'm not worried about that type of attack - if people think of that type of "get around" then they are sophisticated enough to copy the documents anyway).

Back in the days of Windows 95-to-98 I tried several screen capure apps.  I remember the
computer magazines alway rated Techsmith Snagit as the best.  I guess a lot of readers
liked this app, but it was a disaster for me.  Nothing worked right, it was a mess.
My favorite was Print Screen Deluxe until Windows XP came along.  When I dragged the
crosshairs to take a rectangular screenshot the results were not good.  The image captured
was always shifted left, right, up, or down.  It never captured the image inside the crosshairs!
Instead of contacting the author or posting about this problem I just stopped using Print
I've got a couple of freeware screenshot apps that are ok, but they don't work perfectly all
the time.  Can someone recommend a good screen capture app, similar to the old Print Screen

Ok, I've had it up to here with OBS.  It either doesn't record any video at all, only records a corner of the video, lags to hell and back any time there are any sudden movements in the game, or all of the above.
As far as the lag is concerned, I was told in a previous thread that my hard drive transfer speed might be the problem. But my hard drive can transfer up to 3.0GB/s! So that can't be the problem! Besides, I can record screen footage with camstudio no problem!
I want some screen capture software that meets the following criteria:
1. 100% totally free.
2. Records what happens on-screen. If the game automatically switches to full-screen, then that's what the software captures. If I can't see my taskbar or desktop, then I don't want the screen capture software recording it. No choppy framerate.
3. Records, frame-for-frame, exactly what I see on screen, at 60fps. If my character whip-pans, the screen capture shows a whip-pan.
4. It can record whatever I see on-screen, no matter what game or app I'm trying to capture. That's something that Shadowplay doesn't do.
5. Records mic and speakers ... together.
6. It's plug-and-play simple. All that bullcrap about sources and scenes ... why do I need any of that? All I want is to record what I see on-screen to a video file I can edit with VideoPad Video Editor. That's it. I don't need it to come with any extra features I'm not going to use.

I've been getting good photo results snapping photos off my matte PC LCD screen using a Canon point-and-shoot camera set on macro. The colors are good and the results are clear but my friend tells me he uses capture to get photos off the screen. What exactly is that? Is it when you click "Save" and it is saved by the PC? I want to save it on an SD card so I can view it on my cameras' LCD screen without having to go to my PC. What exactly is "capture"? Thanks.

A:How to capture Screen Shots?

If you tap the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard, a screen capture of your entire desktop is copied to the Windows clipboard. If you hold down the "Alt" key and tap the "Print Screen" key, only the current active window will copy to the clipboard.

You can not paste directly from the clipboard to the SD card. You would first need to paste the clipboard contents into a suitable image editing program. You can then have the program save the file with the image anywhere you want.

EDIT: Certain programs may use an overlay method to display images and video on the desktop. These may show up as black boxes in the capture.

How does one get a printout with the list of folders and files when a particular directory is on a Windows XP screen?

In DOS, you could do a DIR command and direct the output to th printer. I'm looking for the same results without going to the c:\ prompt.

Maybe there's a keystroke that will do this??? Pushing "prt sc" doesn't work and neither does CTL-P. And there's no printer icon that can be chosen for the toolbar in order to print the screen.

So, how can I get an image or the information that's on the screen transferred to the printer???


A:printing screen or screen capture

Print Screen copies an image of whatever's showing on the monitor to the clipboard. After pressing the Print Screen button, open a picture editing program and paste the image the Print Screen placed on the clipboard. From there you should be able to print it out on a printer.

I read about something that did exactly this very recently and I can't remember what it was called. I just did a search for it and I came up with something that is kind of similar, though it might be way more than you want to spend, it is called a Epiphan DVI frame grabber and lets you output to a capture station so you can capture full quality 30fps from your main display.

If I can think of the thing I saw recently, I'll come back and update this and let you know. The Epiphan thing is like $700 and I don't think the device I saw recently was that expensive. Though I think the Epiphan is exactly what you describe, with the USB Interface.

Hi lewislink,

I believe the problem is the way videos are displayed. I tried the following solution and it worked fine in Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic under Windows 7. I'm pretty sure it used to work the same under XP.

- Download and install ScreenHunter Free.

- Star ScreenHunter and click Standby.

- When you wish to capture a screen, hit the F11 key. The movie display will pause.

- Drag a box over the part of the screen you wish to capture (or even the whole screen). Click OK when the 'Capture Complete' box is displayed.

- Paste into your graphics application - I use both Paint and IrfanView with 100% success.

After the first time, ScreenHunter is running in the background so F11 is all that you need to press to capture the next screen.

Hi All,
As per title I'm looking for a tool that can save crop box sizes by name as opposed to its size.
Most tools I see just allow you to drag out a section of the screen then save.
Some I've seen save specific sizes in its database so by selecting your size and say hitting a hot key the selected size cropper outline is shown on the screen,position it then save etc.
This is ok but when you get a bit of a list trying to remember which size cropper is used for what is hard. Now if you could save the cropper size as a name then the list can be huge as the title upon selecting will be easier to remember than just 1024x768 etc.
Do you know of such tool or know a link for making such tool.

My wife has a counseling practice & uses specialized software to help her schedule and keep track of client billing. Most of the time, she just prints out a receipt for them after a session. Occasionally, she needs to e-mail clients receipts for her services & for their insurance needs.

This specialized software allows you to only print the receipts directly to your printer. There is no option or way to "save" the receipt to her PC (Word, PDF, etc.) so she can then attach it & e-mail it to clients. Therefore, if she needs to e-mail a receipt, she has to basically first print it out and then scan it back into the PC as a PDF file. She can then attach this PDF file to an e-mail and send it this way.

Is there any software out there that can somehow screen capture the receipt portion only on the computer and then save this as a certain file (Word, PDF, etc.). I thought about the screen capture feature within Windows XP, but this won't work as she doesn't need the whole screen to be included. Only the receipt part that is on the screen.

Basically, take a pop-up window (the receipt) and make it some sort of file (Word, PDF, etc.).
Any suggestions?
