PlayClaw 5.0 Build 3034


Maybe because it is designed to be used with Windows 7 and 8 only, the user interface of PlayClaw repeats the new Windows 8 tile style and colors. Each single program feature or option is presented as a separate block and is colored differently than the others. With a click of your mouse a new window opens up and there you can tweak all the options.

The General settings tile will give you access to the Desktop mode button, an auto-update check-box and the language drop-down menu. Folders block is used if you want to change your default folders for the captured screenshots and videos.

The Overlays tile will list all available overlays and once you select any of them you will have the chance to tweak its parameters.

Basic Operations

PlayClaw can be used with its desktop mode and then you can control it with your mouse or custom hotkeys can be used to trigger the application. If you look for a help file you have to visit the developer's website and download the user manual file there, which by the way comes only in English. Profile, which allows you to save any given profile that you create based on your needs is another very useful feature. You can call it later and it will load all settings that you have changed to create it. This way you can quickly load various profiles based on the game you want to play.


PlayClaw 5.0 is a very useful tool for everybody and especially for gamers. It may seem like a small program, but it is capable of miracles while doing its job behind the scenes. If you wonder if it fits your needs – just download the demo version and give it a try. You do not have to be an advanced or experienced computer user to set it and use it right. Just keep in mind that it will add a watermark to each file until you purchase a valid license.


  • Discrete operation
  • Configurable settings
  • Nice interface


  • Demo version has several limitations
