Mimics one of my favorite features in Mac OS X 1 Helpful

Positive Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Lightshot Sep 2012

One of my favorite features in Mac OS X is its built-in screenshot tool. The default "PrntScrn" function in Windows sucks, since you're forced to take a screenshot of your entire screen (a huge pain due to my dual-monitor setup), and there's no easy way of saving the image. The Snipping Tool in Windows is a little bit better, but there's no easy way to turn it on, and it's not very flexible or quick to use, either. Meanwhile, the screen capture feature in Mac OS X allows you to select only a single part of your screen to capture, saves your screenshot automatically to the desktop, and is accessible via a keyboard shortcut.

Until Windows gets a less cruddy screen capture feature, LightShot is the best way I've found to mimic the excellent screenshot feature in OS X.
