This post will show you how to screenshot any part of your PC and crop it right there without pasting the screenshot image in any application like Microsoft word, Paint, Corel Draw Etc. like it is obtainable using the traditional Print Screen (Prnt Scrn).
General you use Print Screen to capture your screen or desktop, but will need an application like Paint, Corel Draw, Microsoft Word and others to crop and Edit the exact area you need. Most time, the cropped area will be very blur.
I use a software known as Lightshot – a simple and free software to screenshot both Mac and Windows desktop. The difference between Lighshot and other screen shot is that it works outside the browser compare to other screenshot that works on only browsers.
