Lightscreen is a lightweight screen shooting application for Microsoft Windows, used to automate the process of saving and cataloging screenshots.[1] It operates as a hidden background process that is invoked with one (or multiple) hotkeys and then saves a screenshot file to disk according to the user's preferences. It has no built-in editing or annotation tools.[4] Lightscreen has features to set a delay time and save screenshots in multiple image formats.[1][5] A portable version is available[6][7][8]
