If you want to capture the screen of any Windows PC, then you can use the PrintScreen key on your keyboard. This snags the screen and copies the image to the clipboard so that you can use it in any image editor of your choice.

After you click on the small Start button, it will place an icon in the system tray.
You can right-click on the system tray icon to see various options such as capture current window, capture all displays, capture specific display, capture customized area, capture freehand area, etc. If you just left-click on the system tray icon for Abelssoft Screenphoto, then it will capture the entire screen for the currently active display.
