This guide will discuss where the screenshots taken are saved on a computer or laptop running Windows 11. Capturing screenshots can be done in different ways: through the Game Bar, through Steam or the built-in tool of the windows operating system. So it depends on how you capture the screenshot. Let’s find out the screenshot folder.
Where Windows 11 screenshots are saved when pressing Win + PrintScreen
If you took a screenshot of the screen when you pressed the combination of buttons on the Win + PrintScreen keyboard, then it can be found along the path:
- This PC> Pictures> Screenshots
The Win+PrintScreen key captures a full-screen screenshot and saves it as a PNG file.
Where are the Windows 11 screenshots taken through the GameBar
If in Windows 11 you use the GameBar or the shortcut keys Win + Alt + PrintScreen, then they are saved along the path:
- This PC> Videos> Captures.
You can also press the Windows+G key to open Xbox Game Bar.
Where Steam Windows 11 Screenshots are Stored
If you are playing Steam games and taking screenshots of gameplay by pressing F12, then screenshots are saved along the path:
- The easiest way to find Steam’s screenshot folder is through Steam itself. Launch the Steam app to see where Steam screenshots are saved. Now in the menu bar, tap View and then tap Screenshots. From the Screenshot Uploader, click on Show on Disk. You will see a folder with the screenshots.
- You can also see Steam screenshots without using Steam. You have to open this folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam. Now navigate to the “user data” directory and open the folder labelled “760”. Now click on Remote and head over to the folder labelled “screenshots”.
