Logo HolzShots CI Chocolatey Version

A lightweight screen capturing utility that gets out of your way.

  • No dedicated, cluttered settings UI – use your favorite JSON editor, like VSCode.
  • Upload to you own services via config files – like ShareX – but keep them updated – like user scripts.
  • No bloat like a DNS changer, hash validation or an FTP client. Just screenshots and screen recordings.
  • Tries to cover 80% of use cases - if you need more features for some tasks, try other tools for that use case1.


  • Requires a supported Version of Windows 10; 64 Bit
  • An internet connection is probably a good idea


Download the latest release here.

Or install it using Chocolatey:

choco install holzshots

CLI Options

HolzShots is a single-instance application. However, you can interact with the running instance. If you pass command-line parameters, they'll invoke actions on the running instance (or start a new one if HolzShots isn't already running).

Currently, these are supported:

holzshots capture-area
holzshots capture-full

holzshots open-image [optional image path]
holzshots upload-file [optional file path]

Feel free to integrate this into your tooling!


HolzShots is built on the shoulders of giants and uses various tools and libraries which all hav their respective license. Thank you!
