How to take a screenshot of a selected portion of your screen in windows

Don't tell me snipping tool

I want something similar to mac (command+control+shift+4) which is very fast to copy and paste a selective portion of a screen

If you want a random area of the screen snipping tool is the easiest built-in way.
If you want the entire desktop(s) just printscreen will do it.
If you want to capture just an application window, click the application so it has focus, hold alt and press print screen

Doesn't exist built into Windows. snag-it will do, but you have to buy snag-it

I use Lightshot and it is fast. After installation, just press the "PrintScreen" key to take a screenshot. You can screenshot part of the screen too.
