SysExporter - extract infromation from any program or window

Posted by ClifNotes, May 2008, permalink System Information


While visiting the freeware genius blog, I found a very handy utility that could save you time if you need it. SysExporter will grab text information from a program window that you can't copy from using the Windows copy function.


Note: Some time ago I learned a great shortcut for grabbing text from those pesky error messages that you get in Windows. Just highlight the window and press Ctrl + Insert. Now you can paste the error message text into any window that accepts text. To save it as a file, just paste the message into the Windows Notepad editor.

Quote from the website

What do you do when you have information being displayed right in front of you that you need but cannot simply copy/paste or export? Typically what I used to do in this situation is simply grab a screenshot and perform OCR (optical character recognition) using a program such as JOCR. With SysExporter, however, I could simply locate the application that I want to extract data from in the SysExporter interface, then simply scroll through all of the dialogs associated with that application until I find the information I seek. Simple and quick.
