Those who enjoy playing video games are likely to be familiar with “Steam,” one of the most widely used gaming platforms in the world.
It is a large platform that offers a variety of gaming genres and is at the top of the list when it comes to downloading new titles.
Online players understand the value of capturing a snapshot of their screen’s online activity, as it is considered one of the most valuable sources of information for bragging rights and bug reporting.
What Is a SteamID and How Do I Get One?
If you don’t know your “SteamID,” you can find out by following these steps –
Step 1 – Open your Steam client and select View, then Settings from the drop-down menu.
Step 2 – Select Interface and check the box labelled “Display Steam URL address when available.” Then press the ‘OK’ button.
Step 3 – Go to your Steam profile and select View profile.
Your SteamID is the number at the end of the URL that you can use to find your saved images, as mentioned below.
You can use a hotkey (the default is F12) or take a snapshot of the current in-game to access the Steam Screenshot Folder in any Steam game.
You can post this screenshot to your Steam profile or to other social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and others.
If you’re having trouble finding the photos you took, there are two options –
You can access them through Steam’s Screenshot Manager or by storing them on your hard drive.
Method 1: Screenshot Manager
You may utilise the Screenshot Manager in your Steam Client to see all of the screenshots you’ve taken in-game.
“Steam Window” should now be open. Click on View, then select Screenshots in the upper left corner, where all the dropdowns are situated.
Taking Screenshots with the Screenshot Manager –
Step 1: You can submit any image you like.
Step 2: By pressing the [Show on Disk] option, you can retrieve the screenshots directly from your hard drive.
Step 3: You can even delete the specific screenshots permanently from your hard drive right from this page.
Method 2: Physically accessing the Screenshot Folder
Each user has their own Screenshots folder, which stores all screenshots captured in-game. This is the folder where Steam is presently installed. Local disc C is the default location.
C: Program Files (x86) is the folder’s path.
760remoteapp – ID>SteamuserdatayourSteamID>760remoteapp – ID>SteamuserdatayourSteamID>760remoteapp – ID>SteamuserdatayourSteam
However, depending on where you stored the screenshots, the path may change, but if you access the screenshots folder, you will view the game’s images.
If you want to change the destination folder for your screenshots, follow the instructions below –
Step 1 – Delete the ‘Remote’ folder first. This folder’s path is as follows – SteamuserdataAccountID760.c:Program Files (x86)SteamuserdataAccountID760.c:Program Files (x86)SteamuserdataAccountID760.c:Program Files
Step 2 – You must start a Command prompt for administration after deleting this folder. Right-click the Command prompts from the results and select Run as administrator.
Step 3 – Execute the following command: mklink /D “C: Program Files (x86) Steam userdata AccountID760remote” “XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
We sincerely hope you were able to locate your screenshots after completing all of the steps outlined here.
These are pretty straightforward processes. So relax and enjoy online gaming and bragging rights. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
