Presently viewing a web page with plenty of interesting stuff you don’t want to ignore? There are so many ways via which you can save the web pages you view on the internet but what I will be showing you guys today has to do with taking screenshots. I guess you must have been wondering how I get to show you guys pictorial guides of posts having to do with web pages. One simple truth is that I really do not like installing third party software and applications on my computer so I normally make do with the pre-installed Windows features. The con about using this feature to take screenshot is that you will have to print screen i.e. take a snapshot and then paste to another source before saving. What if you are not the type that likes to go through such plenty process?
Well, today we shall be looking at how we can take screenshot of the web pages we visit without actually having to exit or minimize the browser. As I always said, there are plenty of ways to achieve this. If you are using Google Chrome browser to access the internet, then this guide is for you.
