MiniCap is a minimal screenshot capture app, with good commandline support, including the ability to launch (and then terminate) apps, capture windows by handle or object name.

But the most common way to use MiniCap is with commandline arguments for non interactive capture:


  • Tells MiniCap to automatically save the captured image using the specified filename, including path, and extension which should include the image format extension of your choice (.jpg, .gif, .pdf, .png, .bmp, .tiff).
  • You can use certain fields which will be replaced:
  • $appdir$ - application directory (useful if you want to save snapshot in same directory)
  • $appname$ - application exe name (without path)
  • $nicename$ - nice name of application exe (taken from exe resource)
  • $windowtitle$ - window caption
  • $uniquenum$ - adds unique number to filename to avoid overwriting existing files
  • $datetime$ , $date$ , $time$ - local date/time

  • Tells the app that is run to close after screenshot is taken
  • If you don't specify -closeapp or -killapp then the app will be left running after the app is launched

  • Closes app harshly if it won't close by normal request

    -sleep #
  • Sleep # seconds before engaging capture

  • Automatically capture the application specified by a -run argument

    -capturehwnd #
  • Automatically capture the window with the specified handle number (specified in decimal)

    -capturepid #
  • Automatically capture the main window of the application with the specified process id (specified in decimal)

    -captureregion left top right bottom
  • Capture screeen region specified

  • Capture entire desktop screen

    -captureappbyname "filename.exe"
  • Find the window of the running exe specified and capture it (specify filename with extension but no path)

  • Exit minicap after the screenshot is saved
  • If you don't specify this then MiniCap will remain open after the capture.

  • Use scrolling window capture more

  • Set window to be captured to foreground before capturing

    -run "APPNAME" [args+]
  • Runs a specific application specified before capturing.
  • All arguments after appname are passed on the commandline to the app, so -run should be the last argument you specify

    -runcap "APPNAME" [args+]
  • Same as calling with -run and automatically adds the following arguments for easy use: "-closeapp -exit -sleep 3 -captureapp"

    MiniCap.exe -save "C:screen_$appname$$uniquenum$_$date$.jpg" -closeapp -exit -sleep 4 -capturerunapp -run "C:Program FilesMacromediaFlashPlayer.exe" "C:MyMovie.swf"

    MiniCap.exe -capturerunapp -exit -save "D:desktop.png" -sleep 5 -closeapp -exit -run "C:WINDOWSsystem32notepad.exe" "C:WINDOWStest.txt"

    MiniCap.exe -save "E:test.jpg" -runcap "C:WINDOWSsystem32notepad.exe" "C:WINDOWStest.txt"
