Steam Screenshot Folder

From sharing winning game news ,to just some academic related information, be it a bug reporting ,or a solution of any device related issue provided on any website, we mostly take help of Screenshots. Anything whatever we think is important or will be of use later. We try to keep it safe, mostly by clicking screenshots.

Such a screenshot taking process is way easier on mobile phones where we just need to swipe the screen vertically down with three fingers and the picture is in our gallery. But on PC it’s a little difficult. Clicking a screenshot is, well, easy as it just can be done by tapping over the F2 button which is the default key.

Steam Screenshot Folder

Though, the difficult part remains with finding the image taken. Locating a picture is easy only when you know the exact directory.

Steam is a gaming platform. Here, you can snap in screenshots anytime between games but may not be able to find that. The picture taken can be found through two ways:-one is through screenshot manager and other is through accessing the screenshot folder physically.
