    I don't download anything. I just:
    1. click "PrintScreen" on my keyboard. That takes the screenshot to my clipboard.
    2.Open Paint and "paste," it there. You can also crop it here in Paint.
    3. "Save" however you want.

    Thanks! I've been using grabit, but greenshot looks simple and very flexible. I'll give it a "shot".
