ScreenPrint Platinum User Guide

Selecting Your Output

With ScreenPrint Platinum you can Print, Capture, Print and Capture or Email what you see on your screen when you press the Print Screen key. You can also capture images directly to a File, MS Word or MS PowerPoint. We refer to how the images are processed (printed, captured, etc.) as "Output."

There are several reasons to capture images rather than just print them. For example, you might want to edit an image you captured from your screen, you might want to paste it into an MS Word document or other application, or you might want to save it to your hard disk. Obviously you cannot do these things if you configure ScreenPrint to "Print Only," but you can if you select "Capture Only" or "Print and Capture."

Make your selection in the Output Box in the Main Window to determine how screen shots will output when you press the Print Screen key:


  1. Select Print and Capture to both print and capture screen images (the default setting after you install ScreenPrint).
  2. Select Print Only to print screen images without capturing them.
  3. Select Capture Only to capture screen images without printing them.
  4. Select Email to attach a screen image to an email message. The "To" and "Subject" fields can be pre-configured with default settings in ScreenPrint's Setup.
  5. Select File to automatically save a captured image to a file after pressing the Print Screen key. Images will be saved in the folder selected in the Default Image Save Folder.or any in other folder you select in the Save As dialog.
  6. Select MS Word or MS PowerPoint to automatically paste images into Word or PowerPoint after you press the Print Screen key. For additional information see the MS Word Notes and PowerPoint Notes sections under Pasting Images into MS Word and PowerPoint.

Note: Every image is automatically copied to the Windows Clipboard, regardless of your selection in the Output box. Therefore, you can print and/or capture an image and paste it into an application from the Windows Clipboard without returning to ScreenPrint. Press the Ctrl-v keys or click Edit > Paste on the application's menu bar to paste the image.
