Screenpresso, the popular screen capture program, has been updated to version

Screenpresso UI

We reported back in October, that Screen Presso was Windows 10 compatible with v1.6.0. It introduced some new features to the app, including a Quick Capture bar,

The app picked up a minor update, in November, taking the version to 1.6.1. It was this build which added full support for 64-bit Windows architecture. Additionally it also added an option to keep its taskbar icon blinkling in different colours, while a video recording is on-going.

Another useful feature addition in the previous version, was the ability to take a fullscreen screen capture, by pressing Print Screen followed by the F key.

Now, let’s take a look. what’s new in Screenpresso


The Quick Capture bar’s options, are now hidden, when you switch between apps using the Windows Task Switcher (Alt + Tab). Japanese is now officially supported in the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) in the app, and you can also remove lines from the OCR.

Clicking on the taskbar icon, now opens the workspace (where the thumbnails of your snaps are displayed), instead of bringing the app’s context menu.

The image editor in Screenpresso also has a few new options. You can now navigate between images more easily using PageUp and PageDown, the former displays the next snap while the latter displays the previous image. The app will now display the document (image) name in the Print Spooler dialog, when it’s in the printing queue.

A more useful addition is that the image editor now allows you to copy an image to the Windows clipboard, so you can paste it in another app directly. Just open the editor, and click on the “Copy Image” option in the ribbon, and you should be good to go.

Screenpresso now uses the SHA256 certificate, for signing in to Microsoft’s cloud storage service, OneDrive, as per the Redmond company’s security policies. Speaking of OneDrive, if you have it running on Windows, you will need to open its settings to disable the Printscreen hotkey, which it uses to save screenshots to the cloud, and interferes with Screenpresso’s binding for the same key.

If you already have Screenpresso installed on your computer, just right-click the icon on the taskbar and select About > Check for update. It should notify you about the new version and offer to download and install the latest update.
