Is a Table of Figures necessary?

Usually a Table of Contents or Index is meant to help you navigate to
places of interest in the text -- the TOC to a heading or sub-heading,
the Index to one or more occurrences of a key word or phrase. When would
the reader need to look up the name and page number of a screen dump?

If I left out the Table of Figures, would the reader be worse off? Does
it matter what the figures are? all screen dumps? all diagrams? some of
