Contraction of "screen" and "capture", a screencap refers to an image made by freezing or "capturing" all the elements visible on a computer screen for a given instant.

This image can serve as a reference for designers, programmers, or interface developers, as it includes the position, size and contents of all the windows, icons, as well as the cursor in a single, static view.
