Unless you have some screen shot software installed by default just pressing the PrtScn key only makes a copy to the clip board, no files are created.

Windows Key + Print Screen Key creates & saves an image to the Screenshots folder.

medab1 "Windows Key + Print Screen Key creates & saves an image to the Screenshots folder." in post #17.

I just checked 3 Windows 10 computers: 2 of them originally Win7 upgraded to Win10, 1 of them a brand new only 6 months old.

--- The screenshot folder isn't present on any of them.

--- Is there a way to get the screenshot folder?

Hi, I could not find it on any of our machines either, maybe only shipped on some, all have latest up to date win 10 pro.

 

From my MS notes I have found it. Need to modify the registry, and create a new folder under pictures called ScreenShots, appears to work as I have just tested it, I never use it, so will remove it from my test machine. I can give you the mod's if you like they are safe, I wrote them myself.

I had a Screenshots folder with 8.1 Pro.

When I added Windows 10 Pro I chose to keep things.

I guess the folder was kept.

I Googled it & it seems Windows 10 does not have the folder.

 

jenae could help you add it if you want it.

@medab1, thank you for your feedback.

@jenae, thank you for your offer, however I'll continue w/o the screenshot folder.

My SCREENSHOTS are set up to go to my Dropbox account to dropbox/screenshots And I do have a documents\screenshots folder which works

if turn off the Dropbox option.   Thus also works with onedrive. But I have uninstalled the active onedrive app because it causes problems elsewhere. I don't remember what the problem is right now.  I should keep a journal.

 

And yes this and the other active W10PRO machine have been migrated from W7 to W8 to W8.1 to W10 (all PRO).
