The web browser Microsoft Edge introduced a new function that will help you take screenshots of web pages directly from it while browsing the web without the need to use a third party application or the one integrated into the system. Windows 10 operating.
There are of course free applications to take screenshots easily such as the Snip & Sketch application, Greenshot, ApowerSoft, ShareX, PicPick, LightShot, PrtScr, GadWin PrintScreen and DuckCapture without forgetting the application integrated in Windows 10 , but capturing a web page directly from the web browser without installing anything seems more practical to me.
How to take screenshots of a web page directly from your Microsoft Edge browser
Microsoft has integrated this functionality natively into its new Microsoft Edge browser under the name Web Capture, accessible from the browser menu and which will allow you to take a complete capture of a web page with the automatic scrolling down.
It is also possible to define only one area of the page to be captured instead of the entire web page. Once you’ve captured the snapshot, you can copy it to the clipboard, save it for later, or share it with others.
Now to take a screenshot of a web page:
1. Open a website on Microsoft Edge.
2. In the upper right corner of your browser, click on the button. Settings (the 3 points)
3. Select the Web capture option.
4. Using your PC mouse, select the area of the web page you want to capture. (You can drag the slider down to scroll down the page and capture whatever you need.)
5. Click the Copy option in the context menu to copy the image to the clipboard, then you can paste it anywhere using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + V or the Paste option.
That’s it, now you know how to take screenshots (screenshot) of a web page directly from the Edge browser.
