FastStone Capture 9.4

FastStone Capture is a powerful, lightweight, yet full-featured screen capture tool. It allows you to easily capture and annotate anything on the screen including windows, objects, menus, full screen, rectangular/freehand regions and even scrolling windows/web pages.

You can choose to send captures to editor, file, clipboard, printer, email, Word/PowerPoint document or upload them to your website. Editing tools include annotating (texts, arrowed lines, highlights), resizing, cropping, sharpening, watermarking, applying edge effects and many more.

It also allows you to record screen activities and sound into highly compressed video files. Other features include global hotkeys, automatic filename generation, support for external editors, a color picker, a screen magnifier and a screen ruler.

    After using Greenshot and finding intermittent problems of not loading, high cpu and not working i tried faststone captures and its been a dream on windows 10 64 bit 1511 (version2) with out any of those problems. Pity no forum somewhere with lively discussion/tips/tricks but all i have set works fine. didnt even know it can do movie capture so good for producing a demo/training movie. Highly rated, small download and just works. also includes a sort of mini faststone editor.
