Greenshot is a program that makes it easy to take Windows screen shots and use them for a variety of purposes. Once installed, just hit the PrtSc key to select the region of the screen you want to capture, after which a handy menu (shown below) appears. You can instantly have your screenshot saved to the clipboard, Word, web sites like Imgur, and much more too.
You can also choose other options, such as capturing the whole screen rather than just a portion, and you can even capture full scrolling web pages that are longer than a single screen.
Greenshot is a 1.5 MB download from www.getgreenshot.org and the program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust. Note that the download page of the site uses a pop-up window to display the download links. So if you can't download the program, try disabling your pop-up blocker if you have one.
Greenshot is free (and open source too, if you want to study how it works).
