Do you want to Take Screenshot Of the Whole Page in Chrome or any other browser that you are using? ?
Nowadays taking whole page screenshot is too easy, I remember the day in 2013 once I started to write on how to articles especially on tech at that time there was no option for me to take a full-page screenshot, I used to take a one-page one-page screenshot and make the tutorials for my readers.
But now we are in 2020 and things change a lot. Now we have multiple options to do this. in this tutorial I am going to explain to you How To Take Screenshot Of the Whole Page in Chrome.
The first method is using the google developer tool, the Second method is using an extension and the third one is my favorite.
I am 100% sure, the third tool mentioned in this article is going to change the way that you are taking the screenshots and working on it. ?
Without any further delay, let’s explore these methods. ?
Take Screenshot Of Whole Page in Chrome ?
Method 1:- Using Google Developer Tool
Many of you are familiar with Google Developer tool and many of you are hearing this tool first time, For those who are hearing about this first time, Chrome comes with a tool names Google developer tool that is helpful in many cases like finding how a webpage is a deal by a browser means each HTTP request, the performance of the webpage, etc.
You know this can also take a full-page screenshot for you. ?♂️
First, open the webpage that you want to take a screenshot, click on the Three dot icons in the upper-right corner side as shown in the below screenshot then click on the “More Tools” option then click on the “Developer Tools” option.
Alternatively Press “Ctrl+Shift+ I” keyword shortcut on Windows or “Command+Shift+I” on Mac.

Here search for the term “Full”, you will get the “Capture Full-Size Screenshot” option to take the Full page screenshot on the chrome.
Just click on it, it will take a full-page screenshot for you. ?
2. Using Chrome Extension
Now the question is once you have an inbuilt tool to Take Screenshot Of Whole Page in Chrome then why use an extension? ?
Honestly speaking the screenshot coming with the developer tool is not good in quality and also it’s missing additional tools like basic editing that a third-party tool or extension can do. that’s why you need an extension for it.
I will recommend installing the “Full Page Screen Capture” chrome extension offered by gofullpage.com,
Navigate to Chrome Webstore and click on the “Add to Chrome” option to add “Full page screen capture” in your browser.
after installing the extension you will find one camera icon in the upper right corner side to take the screenshot.
By default, it’s taking the screenshot in the png file format but if you want to take the screenshot in the jpg file format, just click on the options icon in the right pane side.
Under the Capture section you have an option for image format, select jpg here if you want to capture the screenshot in the jpg file format.
At the top, you have the option to download this file as an image or download it as a pdf.
This tool is also coming with a basic editor that will help you to add shapes and also stickers.
Click on the Edit option on the screenshot file, now you have to put Stickers and shapes to add in your screenshot.
Adding shapes and stickers is really helpful once you are working with a screenshot that you can’t achieve with the Google developer tool.
You also have the option of Full page editor, click on the More option to use this full editor.
Check out below embedded video below to understand How you can take the benefit of their editor.
