Create a printscreen

To get started, download the free program. After installing the Fenêtre Capture Tool, open the program from the Windows Start Menu. Select a print screen mode: Choose from several print screen options, such as full screen, active window, or partial printscreen. Click and drag to select the area you want to capture or select a screen. The print screen you just created is then displayed in edit mode.

Annotate printscreens 

In editing mode there are a series of editing tools. Select the 'Text' or 'Arrow with text' option to add text to the print screen. With the arrow, highlight and step options you can easily and quickly add instructions in the created print screen.
After you've made all your edits, review your changes. If you wish, the arrows and texts can be adjusted by moving, enlarging, reducing or removing them. You can even change the selection frame of your print screen to select a larger part of the screen without having to recreate the print screen.

Blur parts of the print screen

To hide parts of your print screen, select the 'Blur' or 'Pixelize' tools in the bottom toolbar (checkerboard and drop icons).
Use your mouse to drag a frame over the part of the print screen that you want to hide. The Fenêtre Capture Tool automatically applies a blur effect to that portion of the print screen. Should the selected section of the print screen be made more or less readable? Adjust the intensity from 1 to 10 to adjust the blur.
