How To Take A Screenshot In IE

As one of the worst browsers in the world, IE does suck a lot, not only because it is only workable on Windows, but also because there are few extensions for you to use.

While there are many extensions for you to take a screenshot in both Firefox and Chrome, there are only a few in IE, among which, the following 3 are well-known:

1. FireShot

FireShot

With the free version of FireShot, you can make the following screenshots:

  • The entire page
  • The visible part of page

For the screenshot, you can save it as a PNG, GIF, JPEG or BMP file, edit it with the FireShot editor, or upload it to eaycaptures.com directly after registration. By the way, FireShot is also workable for Firefox.

2. Picnik Tools

Picnik Tools

With the extension Picnik Tools, you can capture the following screens:

  • The entire page
  • The visible part of page

For the screenshot, you can edit/upload it to Picnik, download it as a JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, PDF, or TIFF file, or share it on Facebook, Twitter, Google Buzz and/or some other social networks. And Picnik Tools is workable for Firefox, too.

3. WebCollect

WebCollect

The WebCollect extension is available for you to capture the following screens:

  • The entire page
  • The selected rectangular part of page
  • The selected irregular part of page

For the screenshot, you can select a color with the color-picker, edit it, save it or send it via email.

All the above three extensions works for IE 7 based on Windows XP, and the first one FireShot is also workable for IE 8, other operation systems or IE 9 are not tested.
