How to Capture a Full Web Page Screenshot

To capture the entire content of a web page, you can take multiple screenshots and later combine them together – or you can use specialized screenshot plugins like Fireshot.

When you take a screenshot of a webpage to record its content, usually only the visible area is captured. Of course, you can scroll forward a bit at a time and then capture a new section and later stitch these sections together to create an image.

However, capturing the entire online content immediately is much easier and faster. Various screenshot plugins are available for this operation on PC: for example, the Fireshot extension is available for Chromium-based browsers like Chrome, Edge, Opera, and Vivaldi, as well as Firefox.

Firefox and Opera also offer built-in screenshot functionalities, accessible through icons like scissors or a camera in the top right corner. However, in other browsers, you must first activate the extension’s screenshot functionality. With all tools, you can choose “Visible area” and “Whole site” when saving the screenshot.

This functionality also exists on Android smartphones. However, it only works when there’s more content to save than what’s currently displayed on the screen. To create an extended screenshot, press the power-down volume combination as usual.

It takes a moment for the “Capture more” button to appear next to the sharing and editing icons at the bottom of the screen, and it only lasts for a few seconds. Click on it and use your finger to drag the visible area up or down to the desired section. Then, click “Save” to confirm. You’ll then find the image in the “Screenshots” directory on your phone.

The described process also applies to saving images from the web on smartphones. To do this, resize the part you want to save to the actual image and save it.
