This question on which screenshotting tool reminds me, should we add tool suggestions in the FAQ to encourage better quality questions/answers?

  • Great question! I often find myself just using the Gnome Screenshot tool. But being able to add annotations, and other things, would really help in having answers - with screenshots - with annotations! – Marco Ceppi Oct 4 '10 at 21:14

I would suggest at least a mention of Print Screen and Print Screen+Alt (the latter being useful to screenshot a single window rather than the whole desktop).

  • <Alt>+<Print Screen> is simple and covers 95% of the cases. – Malabarba Oct 5 '10 at 16:51
  • I wish it included the Window borders though... – 8128 Oct 5 '10 at 17:12
  • Perhaps we should mention alt-printscreen in the "How to ask a question page" so new users can give us a better picture of their problem. – Jorge Castro Oct 6 '10 at 12:41
