Sometimes you may wish to quickly copy the color code from that website or from any application running on the desktop. However, to do this the process is some-what lengthy. To identify the color code of an object on the screen, a user normally presses the Print screen key to copy the screenshot to the clipboard and then open an image editing or graphics editing program, create a new file, paste the screenshot from the clipboard using Ctrl+V and then use the pick color tool to identify the HTML code of that color. This is a time consuming and lengthy process. Ever wanted to quickly identify the color code without all these hassles?
