To access the extension’s menu, all you have to do is click its icon. If you need to take a screenshot of the entire page, select Whole page screenshot.

ScreenCapture will scroll by itself the entire page and will open a new tab that contains the screenshot.

Using ScreenCapture, you can edit your screenshots without having to open another app or website. You can add text, arrows, or other elements using the extension. When you've finished editing, you can save it as PDF, PNG, or copy it to your clipboard.

If you need more control over the screenshot, select Capture area. You can edit the captured area by resizing the box. If you want to take a scrolling screenshot, click and hold the lower part of the box and scroll the page using your mouse. If you want to quit taking a screenshot, simply press Esc.

To access your screenshots, open the extension’s menu and click Show History. There you can view, download, or delete your screenshots.

How to Take a Full-Page Screenshot Without an Extension

If you feel you already have too many installed extensions, you can take a screenshot using Chrome’s Developer Tools. Before trying this method, keep in mind it works better for websites with text-based content rather than web apps.

Follow these steps to take a full-page screenshot:

Open Chrome’s menu.

Head to More tools > Developer tools.

Click the three-dot icon from the top-right corner and select Run command. Also, you can press Ctrl+Shift+P on Windows or Command+Shift+P on Mac.

Type screenshot into the search box.

Select Capture full-size screenshot.

Once Chrome takes the screenshot, it should save it into your Downloads folder.

The Chrome Shortcut for Taking a Full-Page Screenshot

Google Chrome includes a built-in screenshot tool, but it's a bit hidden. You'll first enter two sets of keyboard shortcuts, then enter a command to capture a full-page screenshot of any web page. Start by using the shortcut pairs below—enter the first shortcut, followed by the second—depending on your operating system:

On Mac 1. Alt + Command + I 2. Command + Shift + P

On Windows/Linux/Chrome OS 1. Ctrl + Shift + I 2. Ctrl + Shift + P

These keyboard shortcuts will open Chrome's developer menu. Just type "screenshot" and you'll see the option appear to "capture full size screenshot." Simply select this and Chrome will automatically save a full-page screenshot to your Downloads folder!

How to Take a Full-Page Screenshot with a Custom Size

The keyboard shortcut method is a great way to quickly get the screenshot you need, but if you want to customize the width of your screenshot, you'll have to take a few more steps to get it.

Step 1: Open Developer Tools

First, you’ll need to open Developer Tools in Chrome—the first step from before. You can do this by opening the "More Options" menu on your Chrome toolbar, or by using the shortcut Alt + Command + I on Mac or Ctrl + Shift + C on Windows as before.

This will open a whole world of developer tools, including the surprisingly useful Inspect Element tool. But you’re looking for the Device Toolbar—one small icon in the top-center of the Developer Tools that looks like a phone on top of a tablet (or, two rectangles). Click on this to open a responsive version of the web page.

Step 2: Choose Your Size

In the Device Toolbar, you'll see three options for your view: a dropdown menu (currently set to Responsive), the dimensions of the view, and the zoom level. Adjust these to customize your screenshot.

Step 3: Capture the Screenshot!

To download your full-page screenshot, just open the extra menu options in your Device Toolbar (see screenshot), and select "Capture full size screenshot."

Chrome will automatically download the full page. From here, crop as needed to get the image you need.

Chrome's hidden screenshot secret

Before we get into the meat of this spicy tech sandwich, a quick but important word of warning: This Chrome screenshot capturing method takes you into some areas of the browser where regular folk shouldn't do much pokin'. The command is tucked away within the Chrome developer tools section, and there's plenty of advanced stuff in there that could mess up your browsing session if you aren't careful. Stick to this one specific set of instructions, though — and don't poke or prod anywhere else in that area — and you oughta be fine.

Cool? Cool. All right — here's the simple, hassle-free, and extension-free shortcut for capturing a screenshot in Chrome:

Press Ctrl-Shift-I (or Cmd-Option-I on a Mac).

Press Ctrl-Shift-P (or Cmd-Shift-P on a Mac).

Type the word screenshot.

An advanced Chrome screenshot option

So you really want to get wild, you say? Well, wrap your tech-titillated hindbrain around this: In addition to snagging regular screenshots using this method, you can also capture a screenshot of a site's mobile interface right from your computer with almost the exact same set of steps.

Here's the trick: Start with the same first step we just went over — Ctrl-Shift-I (or Cmd-Option-I on a Mac) — then pause for a second. See that bar at the top of the screen, directly beneath the address bar? Click on the area where it says "Responsive" and pick out whatever type of device you want from the list that pops up.
