Capturing Scrolling Screens

Post by BobH »

If I've placed in the wrong forum, please pardon me. I was uncertain about it.

I need to capture a screenshot of four screens worth of images. I searched for answers using Firefox with Windows10 alone, using Screenpresso on chrome with the web extension with Win 10, and using ShareX to capture Firefox screens. I can't make any of them work.

I don't know, but I suspect that age has diminished my mental acuity and affected my attention span. I recently completed yet another circuit around the sun on this blue Earth. I read instructions that predict a set of events that don't seem to happen for me when doing my best to follow them.

Can someone, please, point me in the right direction?

:cheers: :chocciebar: :thankyou:

I moved this to the Graphics and Video Software forum.

If you want to capture a long (or wide) web page, it is very easy in Firefox:
- Right-click anywhere on the web page.
- Select 'Take Screenshot' from the context menu.

- Click 'Save Full Page'.

- When Firefox has created the screenshot, click Copy to copy the image to the clipboard, or Download to save it as a file.

Wow! I didn't know that Firefox would do that!

Thank you, once again, Mr. V. Sorry about the misplacing the post.

Please note that this only works for web pages in Firefox. To capture scrolling windows in other applications, you'll need a dedicated screenshot utility.
Best wishes,

Thanks, Hans! So far, Firefox is where I've needed to capture screens. As I said in the op, I have other tools but cannot seem to make them work. I've tried the Windows Snipping Tool, Screenpresso, ShareX, and native windows key combinations. Apparently I'm too dense to figure them out.

Starting at about 0:40 in this video shows how to capture a scrolling window in ScreenPresso.
and starting at about 1:35 in this video, the same for ShareX.
