This tutorial will show you how to capture and annotate a screenshot in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Microsoft Edge includes a built-in screenshot feature that lets you Capture area on a page or Capture full page as a screenshot.

When you take a screenshot, you can use draw features to mark up your screenshot prior to sharing, copying, or saving your capture.

Here's How:

  • Press the Ctrl + Shift + S keys.
  • Click/tap on the Screenshot button on the toolbar.
  • Click/tap on the Screenshot button on the sidebar.

4 Select the area on the page you want to capture, and click/tap on Markup capture. (see screenshot below)

6 When finished, you can Share or "Copy to clipboard" before you Save the screenshot. (see screenshots below)

The Save As option requires having Ask me what to do with each download turned on in Microsoft Edge settings.

The Save option will save the screenshot to your default downloads location (ex: "Downloads" folder).

Simply use ALT+Print Sc

This works on any Windows, from 98 to 11.

In Firefox too 'Ctrl + Shift + S', 'ALT+Print Sc' doesn't work.
Probably all browsers use this key combination.

Just having a play with this and I don't seem able to select a location to save the screenshot too other than the default 'Download' folder.

When I click save I do not see this:

Hello Mooly, :alien:

Check to make sure you turned on Ask me what to do with each download in Microsoft Edge settings below. You should have the "Save As" option available afterwards.
