We have already seen how to take screenshots on Mac, or how to capture Android screen. Well, now it's the turn of the operating system Windows and we will try to understand how make professional screenshots on it. For Windows PC there are dozens, indeed hundreds of programs for capture the PC screen, but almost all of them are limited only to photograph the screen computer without being able to make changes and optimizations to the image taken. When we talk about a "professional" program by screenshot we mean a program that does not just capture the screen and save the relative image, but a program that also allows you to modify the captured image, add text, arrows, shapes geographic, etc ... in order to complete the screenshot with all the necessary information and details.
Usually you take a screenshot when you want to show someone a certain thing done on your PC, so the insertion of text, arrows and other objects becomes essential to make the captured image "talking". Below we want to report a beautiful program that allows you to do all this. The program is called Screen Recorder and is just not capable of PC screen capture but also to record everything that happens on the desktop (for example to create video tutorials, record video streaming, record webcam, record screen and webcam simultaneously, and much more.)
