We spend a considerable portion of our time using a web browser. Sometimes we may need to get a screenshot of a full page in our browser.

I recently learned that Google Chrome has the option to do that, without using any additional extensions. In this article, we will see how to do that.

Open DevTools Inside Chrome

First, we need to open DevTools inside Chrome. We can open it in different ways:

  1. Main Menu (three vertical dots) in the top-right corner > More tools > Developer tools.
  2. We can also open it using the following keyboard shortcuts: Control+Shift+I in Windows and Linux, or Command+Option+I in Mac.
  3. Another way to open it, is by right-clicking anywhere in the page and select Inspect.

Open the Command Menu

Now we need to open the command menu. We can do that by pressing Control+Shift+P in Windows and Linux, or Command+Shift+P in Mac.

Capture Screenshot

Then, we need to write and select Capture full size screenshot. After we have done that, we should get a PNG file as a screenshot for the full page.

That’s it for this quick tip. It’s really simple, but I think it can be very useful.
