ShareX (featured in the 07-27-2018 Scout Report) continues to be a popular tool for sharing screenshot and screencast information. Since the release of the latest version in March 2020, this tool has been downloaded more than 500,000 times. Easily share screenshots and screencasts with co-workers through ShareX, a Windows utility for capturing and sharing this information. The resource provides a number of ways to specify what should be captured. Users can select from everything on all displays, a single display, a single window, a single region of a window, and other capture modes. Once an image or movie is captured, ShareX can perform a number of post-processing tasks, including watermarking and text recognition. Completed screenshots/screencasts can be uploaded to one of several dozen services. Links to the uploaded file can be created with a variety of URL shorteners (,,, and others). Lastly, these links can be shared using a number of social media channels, including Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Reddit. ShareX is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3, with source code available on GitHub. Executables can be downloaded for Windows computers. ShareX requires Windows 7 or newer.
