Every once in a while you have to send someone a screenshot of something on your screen – your current window, a specific area in a program etc. In most cases, you simply press Print Screen on your keyboard, paste it to an image editing program (e.g. Windows Paint) , save it and then share it.
There are numerous screenshot taking programs out there, some come with many features and paid, others are free but can be unnecessarily bloated or have annoying ads. So, if all you need is a simple screenshot app, check out Screenshoter. It is a very simple app with the most basic features and it is free.
