Take screenshots from your entire display, an active window or a specified area of it and record videos from the action that's happening on your screen. Use the available option to choose whether to include footage from your webcam or not, to determine the formats of the output file and to enable or disable audio recording.

Captura is a very small but useful application that allows you to capture a selected area of your screen or the entire screen. It also has an option that enables you to capture the full screen with a delay of ten seconds. The advantage of this program is its simplicity. After launching the program, you have to select one of the three options to capture; the "Main window" will be minimized and the application will take the screenshot. If you choose to capture a section of the screen, you will be able to move the mouse cursor over the screen, and drag and drop to select the area to be captured. Finally, you have to save the captured image in the location of your preference. You need to include the extension ".jpg" when saving the captured image, because if you don't type it, Windows won't recognize the file as a JPG image. The simplicity of the program also implies limitations: you cannot exclude the mouse cursor from the screenshot; you can't capture a foreground window, or use hotkeys as a capture method.
