I just took a screenshot in Skyrim. The message in the corner says it was saved, but it does not say where...
Where are these saved on my computer?
In Skyrim Special Edition, when I press F12, it takes screenshots that are stored in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\<some id>\760\remote\489830\screenshots. When I press the PrtSc button on my keyboard, it takes screenshots stored in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition.
Definitely seems like there are just two different types of screenshots.
The correct location is in the same folder SkyrimSE.exe is located. Here is the screenshot
You see the file, screenshot0.png, screenshot1.png

One location is
It's not there. There is no folder skyrim in common
Another place that I look for
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata<some_id>\760\remote\72850\screenshots
I found it
Yes there is one screenshot there.
However, the name of the screenshot file when I take screenshot in skyrim is clearly screenshot0.png, screenshot1.png. The only file there is 20200923161224_1.jpg
Also, only 1 screenshot there. I have other screenshot, namely of dragons.
So it seems that screenshots are not saved in one folder. If I go to map it is saved in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata<some_id>\760\remote\72850\screenshots. Normal screenshots is saved in the skyrim directory
I cannot really find where skyrim is installed easily. Looking at shortcut of skyrim shows
Where the hell it's located? Who knows. I know I installed skyrim on drive D so I found it anyway using a program called vortex. There is goes
