9. Problem Steps Recorder

The 'Problem Steps Recorder' lets you record a particular problem you are having with your PC so you can send it to someone who may be able to help. Click 'Record', and a screenshot is taken with every mouse click, allowing comments to be added in between if required. These screenshots (and comments, if any) are placed in a well-formatted HTML document that is placed inside a zipped folder on your desktop - ideal to be attached to an email.

Saw an article on Digg today about windows 7, This is such a great Idea. What do you guys think?


I think it would make a great feature in any OS but Ubuntu would benefit the most.

Great idea, you should submit it to Ubuntu Brainstorm (http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com)!

I think the Ubuntuforums would crash from all the attached .zip folders attached to every query! :P

joking aside, it's one of Windows 7's "ahhh! why didn't i think of that!" features. Really helpful.

Yup, I can't take any kind of credit for this, but I wanted to bring it to the attention of someone who could make things happen. I love Linux and Ubuntu and nothing would make me happier than to help improve it, I'll try and submit it to brainstorm. Cheers :)

I can't remember the name of it at the moment, but don't some Ubuntu-friendly applications already come with such a feature?
