PC Screen Capture is a free software package that allows you to capture anything that happens on your computer screen in real time. It's useful for anyone who uses a computer for work or school. Though there are other programs that you can use, this is one of the few options that are completely free to use.

Not only is PC Screen Capture compatible with most Windows systems, but it is also compatible with different video formats. You can use this when watching almost any video on your computer, including movies and shows that you own and those you download or watch online. It also allows you to capture shots from videos that you stream.

The way it works is fairly simple too. When you want to capture a scene, simply click on the Capture button from the main menu. You can then select how you want to work. It lets you use your desktop or an active window, which comes in handy when taking shots from a streaming video. When you get to the still that you want to capture, it's a simple matter of clicking on a button to take a photo. If you missed the shot that you wanted to take, you can rewind the video and give it another try.

PC Screen Capture also features a drag and drop option that makes it even easier to use. With this feature, you can click on your image and hold down the mouse as you drag and drop the image into any file or folder. This makes it easier for you to save multiple images in less time. You can also save the image in the format that works best for you. It's compatible with formats such as BMP and JPG.

You can even use this program to create your own fun moving pictures because it works with the GIF format. This lets you add text to a photo and moving elements. You can also use the GIF format to create moving photos that feature several stills from your favorite films and shows.

A good feature about this software is that it doesn't take up much memory space. If you want to save some space on your computer though, you can download it to a flash drive and insert that drive into your computer every time you want to use the software.

Whether you need to make presentations for work or school or you just want to create and save still shots on your computer, you need the right program. PC Screen Capture is one of the top free software packages that are compatible with Windows computers. It supports most common formats and will work with most video files.
