How to Take a Scrolling Screenshot in Windows 10

When attempting to capture a webpage, especially one that requires additional scrolling, the default options in Windows 10 — like Print Screen, or the Snipping Tool — fall well short. These apps are designed for single-page screenshots, and don’t work when the entire area isn’t visible all at once.

For those times that you need to scroll to capture all the information, we like ShareX, an open source app that adds the functionality you need to capture the information you need.

    1. Download and run ShareX executable file from https://getsharex.com/. There are alternatives here, if you’d prefer: PicPick is a popular one, as is SnagIt, but neither are free.

    2. In the Setup window, read the License agreement and select I accept the agreement.

  1. Click Next and follow the Setup wizard.
    next 
  2. Click Finish to complete the setup and launch ShareX.

  3. With the web-page open in the background, click Capture.

  4. In the Capture menu that opens, select Scrolling capture. ShareX will provide a capture area demarcated by dotted lines.
