Screen Capture + Print is a free portable screenshot utility for Windows. Unique thing about it is that after a screencap is created you’re gonna be offered with three options of how you want to output the image. One of those options is to directly print it using your printer, which basically means that you can literally print your desktop using Screen Capture + Print.
The other two options are the standard clipboard output, this is where screenshot goes when you press the Print Screen button, and another one that allows you to save the created screen cap as an image.
Right click on the system tray icon is the only thing that might be called the main menu when it comes to this free screenshot software. Menu that pops-up holds options for again three different types of screenshots that can be created and next to that, you only get links for about, help, donations, and so on, but nothing similar to a menu.
This is the output dialog, it’s what appears when you create a screenshot. We mentioned that one of the options of what can be done with the screen grab is Print. The other two are the standard clipboard output, this is where screenshot goes when you press the Print Screen button, and another one that allows you to save the created screen cap as an image.

How to create and immediately print screenshots with Screen Capture + Print
Pretty much everything that you need to do can be seen from the two screenshots above. After you run this free screenshot utility, it’s gonna start minimized to system tray, so don’t click on the executable again thinking that it’s not working.

Once that you have selected that, the small window which can be seen on the second image above will come up.
