What's the best screenshot app for Windows?

I've made the full time switch to Windows and need a way to capture screenshots and recordings. Annotation is a bonus!

    Screen capture, file sharing and productivity tool

    Definitely ShareX.
    I was using Greenshot before discovering ShareX in the reddit of WIndows 10. Have tons of tools, I think its the best one

    Also, with a touchscreen / pen, you can scribble on top of the grabs.

    simple and powerful
  7. Great for screenshots/screencasting fragments or entire web pages with the ability to annotate and edit in the browser, post-screenshot.

    I used to work in tech support which meant every day I had to do lots and lots of screenshots to help explain things to clients. Lightshot worked just fine for me (it still does, I just make fewer screenshots now). Press print screen > select area > add an arrow or some explanation text > done. If you are looking for a quick and easy app, you might want to try this one.
