How to take full page screenshot using Microsoft Edge

There may be situations where you wish to take a screenshot of a web page. For example, think of a recipe or a “how-to” of a website. If you browse with Microsoft Edge, you do not need to use any extra software or whatever. Microsoft’s browser has a built-in feature that allows you to capture screenshots of (full) pages in a JPEG file format.

Screenshots of full pages in JPEG format (as opposed to PDFs) make it easy to save and share web pages. Especially when using messaging platforms like iMessage, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp.

Take full page screenshot with Microsoft Edge

To begin, open Microsoft Edge on your Windows 10 or Mac computer and go to the web page you want to capture.
After you open the page, scroll to the bottom of the page to make sure the Web Capture feature loads images in the article. I discovered that Edge was not recording the images if I was not scrolling through the page during my testing.

Now click the Web Recording button in the toolbar. If you do not see the “Web capture” button in Edge, do this.

Open the Edge browser. In the top-right corner click on the menu button. Click on Settings. In left panel click on “Appearance”. Scroll down to “Web Capture button” enable the setting.
