Window Clippings is a Windows utility program that enables users to capture screenshots from open windows and menus so that the transparency (alpha channel) of target window is also captured. This includes shadows and translucent glass areas produced by Windows Aero in Windows Vista and 7.
Window Clippings 2.0.28 was the last freeware version. The trial version of 2.1.16 and onwards watermark the screenshots in the lower right corner (version 2) or in the center (version 3) of each image.
Window Clippings supports add-ins which extend its functionality. Window Clippings 2.1 comes with a handful of add-ins that enable it to send taken screenshots directly to Paint.NET or Microsoft OneNote.
Window Clippings was acquired by Epsitec in early 2011.
