How to Capture Scrolling Screenshot Windows 10/11

Capturing scrolling screenshots on Windows 10/11 allows you to capture lengthy webpages, conversations, or documents that extend beyond the visible portion of your screen. Here’s how to do it using two built-in methods and a third-party tool:

Method 1: Snipping Tool

  1. Open Snipping Tool: Press Windows key + Shift + S to launch the Snipping Tool.
  1. Select capture mode: Choose the desired capture mode from the options:
  • Rectangular Snip: Capture a rectangular portion of the screen.
  • Freeform Snip: Create a custom-shaped snip by dragging your mouse.
  • Window Snip: Capture the entire active window.
  • Full-screen Snip: Capture the entire screen.
  1. Capture the scrolling content: Position the cursor over the starting point of the content you want to capture and drag the mouse to select the area. The Snipping Tool will automatically scroll down as you drag to capture the entire content.

  2. Save the screenshot: Once you’ve captured the desired content, click the “Save” button and choose a location to save the screenshot.

Method 2: Web Capture in Microsoft Edge

  1. Open Microsoft Edge: Launch Microsoft Edge and navigate to the webpage you want to capture.

  2. Initiate Web Capture: Click the three-dot menu in the top right corner of Edge and select “Web Capture.”
