Take Screenshot of Current Tab in Google Chrome
We already have tons of tools for taking screenshots across platforms. There are many popular and powerful Chrome extensions as well, which enable users to take full-page screenshots and edit or annotate right in the browser. But, if you are still looking for a quicker and simpler solution, Install our Screenshot extension from this link.
It works with Chrome on Windows, macOS, Linux, and Chrome OS (Chromebooks). It should also work with other Chromium-based browsers like Microsoft Edge.
How To Use
Once installed, you can take screenshots of your current tab by using extension’s button on the toolbar.
The Screenshot extension also offers a keyboard shortcut command Alt + P which makes it easier and quicker to take screenshots.
By default, this extension saves the taken screenshot and the file format is PNG. If you want to change these default settings, you can opt for JPEG file format and/or load the screenshot in a new tab. To change the default settings, first right-click on extension’s icon on the toolbar and select “Options” in the appeared context menu, as shown in the following screenshot:
This should open the options page of the extension in a new tab. Here you can change the default settings as described above.
Privacy Friendly Extension
This Screenshot extension doesn’t require any critical permission like access to your browsing history or private data. It is extremely privacy-friendly, light-weight, and to-the-point.
If you prefer to edit screenshots in any third-party image editor like Adobe Photoshop, TechSmith Snagit, etc., this extension would simplify your workflow. Hit the Alt + P keyboard command, which captures and saves the screenshot in a second. Now click on the downloaded screenshot file on Chrome’s download bar (the gray shelf at the bottom), and open it with your favorite image editor.
