Portable Greenshot software is a great tool for taking screenshots. It is lightweight, easy to use and fast to launch. The interface is quite intuitive and the screenshot can be taken with a single click. It can capture multiple regions of the screen and it is possible to add annotations and highlights on the screenshot. It is also possible to upload the screenshots to an external storage. In my experience, the quality of the screenshots is good and the software is responsive. The only downside I noticed is that it can be a bit tricky to save the screenshots in the desired format.

I have been using Portable Greenshot software for over a year now. It is quite easy to use and quite effective. I like that it can be used to edit screenshots quickly and easily. It also has some nice features like being able to blur parts of the screenshot. I find the annotation tool useful for adding text and shapes to screenshots. The feature to upload screenshots to an image hosting service is very handy.
