ACA Capture Pro vs. the Print Screen Key

Next >> | Return to Features Tour

Back in the DOS days, the Print Screen key was the only way to make any kind of screen capture. You hit the key, and your screen was sent to the printer. With the advent of Windows, this key's function changed to allow graphics capture, and hitting the key now copies the current screen to your clipboard, which you have to open from the applications menu, Copy, then Paste into another paint program.

Fortunately, we've moved beyond these primitive screen capture methods. ACA Capture Pro offers unprecedented control over every aspect of the screen capture process. Take screenshots of anything on your screen; send it directly to the application, to file, to the office documetns, to the clipboard, or e-mail it. Flexible, powerful, and affordable, ACA Capture Pro will provide opportunities that were unavailable with the old methods.

Let's compare - Here are just a few of ACA Capture Pro's advantages:
