Want to share a screenshot with someone and have to obfuscate or blur some sensitive info on your screen?

Unfortunately Windows 10’s built-in Snipping Tool is great for taking a quick capture and copying the image onto the clipboard, but not for obfuscation.

Enter Greenshot, a nifty screen capturing tool that goes the extra mile an offers features like:

  • Highlighted selections with customized frames and backgrounds,
  • Ability to capture scrolling web pages
  • And easy exporting to various applications

Greenshot can be downloaded here.

After installation, Greenshot will be on the Windows taskbar:

Select “Open in Image Editor”.

Click on the “Obfuscate” button in the left margin.
