I often have to take full page screenshots of websites due to my work and I used to do this by installing an extension add-on to my browser. It worked great but sometimes the extension gets removed and I have to find another one.
Today I found this website that taught me how to take full page screenshots without needing any add-on extensions! And it’s so simple to do.

Noting this in my blog as a “Life Hack” so that I’ll always remember how to do this. 🙂
The steps with my own explanation (LOL, written in layman terms ok) are:
- On the website you want to screenshot, hold down “CTRL + SHIFT + i” on the keyboard
- A frame/panel (?) will pop up to the side of the website with lots of codes/script, you can resize it smaller so that the website displays correctly
- Now hold down “CTRL + SHIFT + p”
- A menu that looks like a search bar will appear at the top of the frame with a drop down box of different options
- Type in “capture full” to the search bar and you should see one option appear called “Capture Full Size Screenshot”
- Click on that and automatically it will take a full page screenshot and download it to your computer as a .png file
- Once you’re done you can just click on the “X” at the top of the frame to close the panel. Or just press “CTRL + SHIFT + i” again to close it.
Once you’ve successfully done it, you just need to remember this:
- CTRL + SHIFT + i
- CTRL + SHIFT + p
- Type “capture full” (works with just the keyword “full” also)
- Click on “Capture Full Size Screenshot”
- Wait for download to complete, repeat step 1 to close, DONE!
Thank you thank you hackernoon.com for this! Happy to learn something new and useful 🙂
