    You can make the annotations easily by right clicking on the screen shot then click edit. Which will open your screen shot in MS Paint or whatever program you use as the default graphics editor.

    Can this method be used to capture entire page within a scrolling window?

    No, only the visible part.

    Is it possible to make it happen with only printscreen?
    And is it possible to prevent the dimming?

    Cause currently i use an application to save to png when i press printscreen, but its not perfect, as there is some latency and can cause a bit of an hickup.

    Also it is easy to change the save location, just change the location of the Screenshots folder (look at properties).

    I have dual monitors and when using this feature, it captures both monitors in the single screenshot which now requires some editing to make use of the information on just one screen. Is there any way of selecting one or the other monitor and then taking the screenshot? This is important for me because I often use the screenshots in presentations.

    Thanks for all of your great ideas, Brink.

    Hello SR,

    Not with this feature, but you could pick and choose screenshots using the old method and Paint like in the tutorial below if you like.

    ...or with Snipping Tool.

    Hope this helps,
