Steam Screenshot Folder: Where are Steam Screenshots Saved?

Haven’t we all wished at one point in our gaming session if only we could save a snippet of render in the game? Whether it be unlocking a problematic achievement, showing off your excellent character, or even just wanting to save beautiful scenery within a game, we all wish to be able to take Screenshots while gaming.

Steam is a platform that allows gamers to buy their favorite games online, all in one place. It has an articulate main menu that allows you to perform various commands, including taking an in-game screenshot.

How to Take Screenshots in Steam games?

Usually, when wanting to take a screenshot, we hit the shortcut keys on our keyboard to take one automatically. However, usually, that does not work. You may end up capturing a blank screen or a picture of your desktop, so you are forced to find other methods of taking one.

Thankfully, Steam has a built-in shortcut for all its games to take an in-game screenshot, and this shortcut is also found in NVIDIA and AMD’s drivers.

Firstly, to allow Steam to take a screenshot, go to the Steam Interface and make your way to Steam> settings> in-game and make sure the ‘Enable Steam Overlay While in-game‘ option is off.

Now you can take a screenshot in-game. To do this, press the ‘F12‘ button on your keyboard. You will hear a shutter sound, and a window will pop up to the bottom right side of your screen, notifying that the screenshot is saved.

You can customize the screenshot key to your own if you wish by directing yourself on the Steam Interface to Steam> settings> in-game and alter the ‘Screenshot shortcut keys‘ option.

How to Access Screenshots in-game?

While gaming, if you want to go through the screenshots, you have taken, access the Steam overlay by pressing Shift+Tab. Once there, on the bottom left corner, you will see a Screenshot section on the bottom left. Click on ‘View Screenshots.’

At the top, you will choose between screenshots of the current gaming session or those from a previous session. You can use this to check if you have taken them properly.
