Explaining your computer problems to somebody over the phone or text can be quite difficult. The absence of visuals in these mediums prevents you from being absolutely specific about your problem. This is also a problem for the computer troubleshooter who cannot explain clearly where he wants you to type or click. For this reason, screenshots are immensely helpful because they serve as invaluable reference points for you to explain any computer usage scenario.
Simply by placing the mouse over a field and sharing a screenshot of the image, you can convey to others where to click or type or perform any other action. Here to help you take screenshots of your Windows screen easily is a tiny utility called Screen Sniper.
