How to take a scrolling screenshot on Windows 11 (full screen)?

Copper Contributor

I need to take the screenshot of long webpages (more than 4 screens per page). They are very useful blog posts for tech details. I am wondering if there were a way to take scrolling screenshot on Windows 11 in one image? I tried the built-in snipping tool but unable to find a way to do that. Please recommend an app for taking scroll screenshot of long page?

I don't think it's currently possible to capture scrolling screenshot. In most cases, when you choose to capture an entire web page, it will successfully capture content beyond what is immediately visible, to areas you would normally have to scroll down to see. This functionality typically scales to thousands of lines of content. However, some websites, especially some that require paid access, are structured in a way that prevents the capture of content other than what appears in a single viewable portion of the page.

 

You can capture and save the pages separately, and then stitch several pictures together to form a complete picture.

I totally get it! Taking screenshot of long webpages can be a real pain, especially when you need to capture a lot of content, and the built-in Snipping Tool on Windows 11 doesn't have a built-in feature to take scrolling screenshot. But don't worry, you can try Auto Screen Capture, as a free tool that can take a scrolling screenshot on Windows 11 with ease.

You can take a scrolling screenshot on Windows 11 computer, and Auto Screen Capture has a built-in feature called "Stitching" that allows you to merge multiple screenshots into a single image. You can enable this feature in the settings and then adjust the stitching options to your liking. 

Hello @Daphnere,

 

Have you tried the Screenshot feature of Edge?

Right-click the page, select "Screenshot". Then you can choose "Capture Area" or "Capture Full Page" (I think this one will work for you). Then, use the buttons on the upper-right corner to save or copy to clipboard.
