Scrolling Screenshot: How to Take a Full Page Screen Capture on Windows or Mac

February 6, 2020

Want to capture an entire webpage or large document in one screen shot? Hi! I’m Erin from TechSmith and I’ll show you how. [music] So you’ve got that webpage or large document and you want to capture it all in one screenshot? It’s time, to fire up Snagit! Snagit can capture long PDFs, maps, left-to-right, right-to-left, up and down, zig-to-zag…. The point is, it doesn’t even have to fit on your screen for Snagit to capture it. Here’s how to do it! Bring up the capture window, choose all-in-one, and click the red button. Then select an area to record. After selecting the area, click the button that looks like a camera with arrows coming out of it. We call this, “Panoramic Capture.” Then click “Start.” Scroll everything you want to capture through the selected area. You’ll see a small preview of the final image as you’re capturing. When you’re finished click “Stop,” and the image appears in the editor. If you’re capturing something that has vertical and horizontal scrolling like a map, you can do both in a single capture. Then you can mark it up, send it, share it, whatever you need to do! If you enjoyed the video, give it a “like!” If you’re looking for more great content, subscribe to our channel, and if you don’t already have Snagit there’s a link in the description for a free trial. Thanks for watching! [musical outro]

    Good info, however, you need to SLOW down a bit and have arrows pointing to where you are asking us to click.

    I'm sorry but looks like you don't understand the title of the video which made me come here in the first place "scrolling". I have an issue capturing a page with with scrolling bar so the rest of the page is hidden. Before, it was working and once I click the arrows it moves the page, now no more. thump down

    I understand how to use it, but how do I get my computer to schroll down while taking the long image. I tried and the screen didn't schroll to the length I needed.
