Many a times, we need to take the snapshot of our computer screen for different purposes. Most of us usually use ‘Print Scrn’ key to capture the full screen and then edit the required part which is a tedious and time consuming method.

In solution to this, there is a freeware called SliQ which allows you to capture not only the desktop but also images of current window or certain regions.

SliQ is a simple and smart application which lets you quickly and easily take screenshots and save them to disk. It is a real time saver for the people who needs to take snapshot on regular basis. It is compatible with windws 7, vista and xp.

It is downloaded in the form of exe file so, can be installed in just a few minutes. After installation, the main window will appear with simple interface and few options.

You can also choose the default editor which is Windows photo viewer.

You can also directly save the clicked image (without editing) either in the clipboard or at the desired location by choosing the options of ‘Save File As’ and ‘Save to clipboard’ respectively.

By choosing either of these options, you can skip the edit viewer and your image will be saved directly.
