Although the Steam screenshot folder is located inside the Steam installation directory, it’s still a bit difficult to find it as it is nested under multiple other folders.
If you’re looking for an easier way to access this folder, then you can do so by using the Steam client application.
That being said, I’ll also show you how you can reach the exact location of the screenshot folder by using your system’s file manager.
Via Steam Client Application
Steam has a separate built-in Screenshot Manager window where you can view, sort, and manage all your screenshots.
Here, you can also jump straight to the screenshot folder location with the press of a button.
- Launch Steam.
- Click on View and select the Screenshots option.
- Click on Show on Disk (Folder icon). This will redirect you to the screenshot folder.
Via File Manager
If your Steam Client application is not responding or you’re unable to access the folder through the app, then you can also access the screenshot from your system’s file manager.
First, you’ll need to locate the Steam installation folder. You can find the default location for all platforms below:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam
Open the Steam installation directory and navigate to the following directory to locate the screenshot folder
userdata\(Steam ID)\760\remote\(Game ID)
If multiple users have logged into Steam on your System, you’ll find multiple Steam IDs inside the userdata folder. You can check your SteamID by verifying it from the Account details on your profile.
Likewise, there will be multiple GameID folders under the remote folder. To locate the screenshot of the correct game, you’ll need its ID.
You can check a game’s ID from the last numeric digits in the game’s store page URL.
How to View Online Screenshot Folder?
Besides saving screenshots to your local storage, Steam also gives their users a gigabyte of cloud storage to upload screenshots and share them directly on their profile.
You can access the online gallery by clicking on the View my Online Screenshots button on the Screenshot Manager window.
How to Change the Screenshot Folder?
You can also change the location of the screenshot folder if you want to make it more easily accessible.
- Launch Steam and click the Steam option on the menu bar.
- Select Settings.
- Switch to In Game tab.
- Enable the Save an uncompressed copy of my screenshot option and click the Change folder button.
- Click on the folder where you want to save the screenshot shots and hit the Select Folder button.
