Taking a screenshot in the Windows operating system can be as easy as pressing the print screen on the computer keyboard. It becomes slightly more complicated when only a part of the screen needs to be recorded. The screenshot that has been taken with the print key can either be edited in an image editor or a specialized application to take screenshots of parts of the computer screen.
Lightshot is an alternative for the Windows version of the Google Chrome browser. The screenshot extension can be used to take screenshots in the web browser. This limits the reach of the application but might be just what some Google Chrome users are looking for.
The screenshot extension adds a button to the Google Chrome address bar that the user can press to take a screenshot of the web browser window. There does not seem to be a way to take a screenshot of scrolling pages, only the visible area can be captured.
Keyboard shortcuts are available to streamline the process. It is for instance possible to press Ctrl C to copy the selected area to the Windows clipboard. The Ligthshot extension displays several buttons around the selected area which can be used to save the screenshot, send it to an online editor, post the screenshot on Twitter or Facebook or change the borders of the screenshot area.
Users who want more control or to take screenshots of other applications can also install the Windows software version of the Lightshot screenshot taking application that comes with additional keyboard shortcuts among other new options.
