    You don't really need one.

    You can hit the print screen button (prtScn) on the keyboard, then open up ms paint. Go to edit and click paste.

    At that point I save it, and open it in a different graphics program to do any cropping.

    You could probably do everything in the final editing software if you make a new file that is the same dimensions as your screen, ms paint just auto sizes to the object you are pasting.

    I don't know of any programs - it's a pretty standard procedure. Click the "Prnt Scrn" button on your keyboard, or, if you're on a laptop, you might need to hold down Fn or another button & the Prnt Scrn button. See this article for more.

    Depending on the location of the PrtScn button on your keyboard, you may need to hit Ctrl or Alt with it. If you happen to have the microsoft office keyboard, make sure the F Lock is on.

    Other then that, the only other program I know of is Ulead PhotoImpact, but that isn't a free program.

    hold down the alt key, then press the print screen key while alt is held down.
    that should do it on 90% of computers..
    then paste it into MS paint, or whatever you like..

    As I don't do it in windows, I'm not sure about the tecnicalities of the "print screen" button. However, just going to google and typing something along the lines of "screenshot program" gives you a good number of results. I tried it and a number of free things came up, though I didn't have more time to investigate so I don't have any recommendations. Good luck!
