How to capture a complete web with Microsoft Edge

Taking screenshots in Windows 10 is very simple. We can both use the application included in the Crop and Annotation system as well as the Print Screen + Paint key or another editor to finish saving the snapshot.

But what can we do when what we want is to capture a complete web ? Resorting to Microsoft Edge, the Redmond browser, which includes the possibility of taking a screenshot of a website including not only what we see on the screen, but what is below by scrolling. Something that you will like to know if you have just landed on it.

To capture complete websites we do not need applications or additional browser extensions in Windows 10: only Microsoft Edge.

How to capture a complete web with Edge browser

To take a screenshot of a complete website, we must access it from Microsoft Edge and, once loaded, click on Settings and more represented by three ellipses. We can also access this panel with the command Alt + F.

Once in it, almost in its final part, we will find the Web Capture option. We will click on it (or we will use the command Ctrl + Shift + U) and in the upper part of the browser, just below the address bar, in a centered position, we will find two options to take a screenshot: Selection free or full page.

Obviously, we will select the Full Page option by clicking on it to get Edge to take a screenshot of the entire web page before us. It will be done in just a couple of seconds and the result will appear in an overlapping window.

From this window we can draw on the screenshot with different colors and pencil thicknesses, erase what we draw, share the snapshot through the Windows 10 share menu, copy the image to the clipboard and, of course, save it. If we click on this icon, the classic floppy disk, we can save the capture wherever we want.
