Summary:

Taking and sharing screenshots is quite a common thing nowadays. If you want to show some conversation to someone then you can take the screenshots of the same and share with the people you want to. Want to create how-to tutorials then screenshots help you to explain it better, to show someone something as a proof then send them screenshot etc. So, there are many such situations where we need to take screenshots or capture our screen.

Taking a screenshot on your computer via PrintScreen is something long process. first, you have to take the screenshot, paste it into some image editing app, crop unnecessary area, save it and then share with people through email or something.
