I always wondered this, and just now found the answer. Gone are the days of cobbling together multiple screenshots that fit like a four-year-old cut them out with rusty scissors. Here is the brave new world of one single seamless PNG that captures an entire webpage. Thank you, Parabellum1975!
In Chrome, capture a screenshot of an entire web page like this:
- Press Option/Alt + Command + I. (I think Command is the Windows key on a PC.)
- Click the device icon.
- Click the grey bars to select the view you want: Tablet, Laptop, Mobile, etc.
- Click the three dots.
- Choose “Capture full-size screenshot.”
- Locate the file wherever you have Chrome set to store downloads.
In Firefox, capture a screenshot of an entire web page like this:
A day after I posted the Chrome instructions, I noticed that Firefox had automatically installed a beta version of a new-to-me function called Firefox Screenshots.
I hope this means that if I surf the Internet for “find a million dollars” and then write a post about how to find a million dollars, a million dollars will automatically install itself in my bank account.
Firefox Screenshots is awesome. It’s much simpler than the Chrome method. First, head over to download it from Mozilla. Then:
- Click the three dots on the right side of your address bar.
- Click “Take a Screenshot.”
- Click “Save Full Page.”
- Locate the file wherever you have FF set to store downloads.
Let me know if this changes your life as much as it has evolved mine.
