Is there an in-game way to take screenshots? Or do we have to use external tools?

I don't see anything in the options regarding screenshots. Considering games released on the Steam platform typically let Steam handle screenshots, I would have hoped the Battle.net client would as well but I don't think it does. I suppose I could use the Xbox keyboard shortcut to take them (Alt-Win-PrintScreen) but it's technically not part of the game. Did they really not include this?

  • Have you tried the "default" screenshot keys like F10, F12 and PrintScreen? Commented Nov 4, 2019 at 7:08
  • Yeah, those don't do anything. F10 disables sounds, F12 and PrintScreen doesn't do anything as far as I can tell (except maybe the OS will pick up PrintScreen and copy to clipboard). Commented Nov 4, 2019 at 7:24

    Does Fn+PrtSc work?

  • This question shows a remarkable lack of research effort, especially from someone who, with such a high rep, should know better what makes a good question or not.

  • @senpai how so? What is there to research? The game has come out only weeks ago. It's neither documented anywhere in-game nor a question anyone asked that I could find. For such a "basic" question, you'd think anyone would be able to point out where it is without a problem. Commented Nov 4, 2019 at 15:13

To automatically save a screenshot in windows: Win + PrtScr

This will save a screenshot in your pictures folder.

    Oh thanks, I didn't know about that one. Though I think for gaming, I would specifically want to use the shortcut from the Xbox game bar (Alt+Win+PrintScreen), at least with that it keeps screenshots restricted to the application (instead of the whole desktop in multi-monitor situations) and keeps all game related items together.

  • While a good answer, for someone like me with 2 monitors, PrtScr will capture the game window, and the full window of the other monitor. Commented Nov 5, 2019 at 13:37
