I would like to introduce to you ScreenToGif. A must have tool for users and professionals alike.

I first came across ScreenToGif, because reporting bugs/issues is often convoluted, often lacking the necessary language to describe the problem experienced due to the technical nature of the problem or, where a picture speaks a thousand words and a screenshot simply just does not suffice to tell the story.

I use it often to explain to someone how to achieve something in a software or OS or when bugs are experienced, it saves me a ton of typing and a few clicks do the job instead.

ScreenToGif is simple to use, has a small learning curve and is more or less complete solution, so I highly recommend this tool.
