  • ShareX has a lot of features and functionality, and initially it can seem intimidating. The program is extremely configurable, though, and it's ability to automate just about everything will save you an enormous amount of time.

    Pros :

    Cons :

  • After trying out many tools (both paid and free), I have come to the simple conclusion that ShareX is irreplaceable today. I have been using it extensively for more than six months now and have not found anything as invaluable. It is an excellent timesaver, and has been of great help in making a repeatable task as painless as possible, and is one of the go to tools.

  • In conclusion, ShareX is an excellent screen capture tool which encourages collaboration via several web-based channels.

    Sharex is a free and very simple screen capture tool, but it also contains a huge number of functions not related to the screen grabbing. First, the developers added the additional features to the PrintScreen key. If this key is pressed, Sharex not only makes the screenshot of the whole screen, but also uploads it to image hosting, and shortens the link. If one uses the Shift PrtScn keys, it is possible to cut the desired area of the screen. Any link can be shortened using a key combination. To do this one has to put it into the clipboard, and press the button. The short link to the screenshot will be automatically placed on your clipboard. Besides, any text from the clipboard can be uploaded to Pastebin.com or similar services, and a short link of this could be taken. Sharex also supports quick uploading of files to many files sharing services. It is possible to get the link to the file. It is very handy that Sharex can automatically determine the clipboard content (text, image, or file), chooses the right service to upload it and copies the short link into the clipboard. Of course, the user can choose what hosting will be used for files, text, images uploading and URL shortening. There are a lot of predefined services (more than 50), but it is also possible to set up your one. If you decide to use the Sharex for screen grabbing note that it supports different ways of capturing screenshots including window, full screen, monitor, region, freehand, scrolling. Screencast recording is also possible, but it is not the strongest program feature.

    Pros :

    • Free and open source.
    • Free from advertisement.
    • Many file hosting services and URL shorteners aresupported.

    Cons :

    • Video recording quality is not the best.
    • You should download and install additional components manually to be able to record the screencast.
