Screen capture for designers/ developers

Snipaste is a portable screenshot tool aimed at developers and designers.

The program enables capturing UI elements: a button, a panel, a menu, maybe the entire application window.

Selection is automatic, and you might have seen something similar with other capture tools. You press the capture hotkey (F1 by default, oddly), move the mouse around the interface, elements are highlighted as you hover over them, and left-clicking snips that area.

Unlike other screenshot tools, your capture doesn't appear in another window. Instead it overlays the captured area of the screen and you're able to draw shapes or arrows on it, highlight areas, apply mosaic or blurring effects, add new text, and generally edit it in place.

When you're finished, the annotated capture may be copied to the clipboard, or saved as an image file.

Unusually, you can also paste the clipboard image - whether it's saved by Snipaste or not - back onto the screen as a floating window.

If you'd like to see how a toolbar or some other UI element looks on a program, this allows you to paste an image onto the screen and view it in-place.


Snipaste doesn't have the power of a full-strength screen capture tool, but the in-place editing and the ability to paste images onto the screen as floating windows are major pluses. If you're interested, check it out.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
