I wrote this last week for some of our A-level students who were fed up of using printscreen and cropping the result for their coursework papers. You're welcome to it.
From the desc:
"Grabber is a light-weight Windows application to take a portion of the screen as an image, and place it on the clipboard. It's best used for capturing small sections for tutorials, documentation, and coursework write-ups."
Requires .Net 2.0 and comes with no warranty whatsoever. Grabber.
The point of writing Grabber was that it doesn't have any bells, which were what irritated the boss.
Also if they just want the window that is in focus, they can also use [ALT]+[Print Screen]
It makes the process of getting part of a window one less step (actually, one step) so their coursework screenshots are nice and concise. (You have tried it to see how it works, haven't you?)
I don't think anyone's criticsing your efforts
They are just pointing out alternatives that do a similiar job
I install purrint as standard on my machines
I'll give yours a go
One slight criticism
Where's the instructions on how to use it

Mm, sorry if it sounded harsh. Just doesn't sound much like anyone's read the OP, where I explained the point of it.
Anyway, instructions: Click, draw, paste! I'm no more imaginative than that, guess I could put something in the installer readme for it

Remember - I'm not called SimpleSi for nothing
Never give them a documentation job
PS I'd stick that in your OP/webpage
Cool... looks good!
Grabber 1.0.2 is available. This update adds a Getting Started dialog on first run, to give the user a quick pointer. Once shown, it does not appear again unless the user's profile is reset.
It is per-user. If you want to disable it on an administrative basis, set the following registry value to non-zero:
This will stop the first run dialog appearing for anybody.Code:Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Grabber Value: NoFirstRun Type: DWORD
