How to Access Steam Screenshot Folder

In any steam game, you can click a hotkey (default is F12) to snap a screenshot of the current in-game screen. You can publish this screenshot in your Steam profile or upload it on other social media forums. However, sometimes you may face the problem of being unable to locate the pictures taken. There are two ways you can access these pictures; one is to access them via the screenshot manager in steam and the other is to access them through hard drive storage.

Method 1: (Screenshot Manager)

You can use your steam client to view all the screenshots taken in-game using the Screenshot manager.

First of all, open your steam window. On the upper left where all the dropdowns are located, click on [view > screenshots].

Using the Screenshot Manager, you can upload the desired picture or delete it. You can also access the Screenshots directly through your hard drive by clicking [show on disk] button. There is also the option to delete specific screenshots permanently from your hard drive directly from here.

Method 2: (Accessing the Screenshot folder physically)

Each user has his own screenshots folder where all the screenshots taken in-game are saved physically. This folder is located where your steam is currently installed. The default location is in Local disk C.

Open your drive:

 C:\ Programfiles (x86) \ Steam \ userdata\ <yourSteamID> \ 760 \ remote\ <app – ID> \ screenshots

If you are trying to find your Screenshot folder on other operating systems here are the known location of some OSs.

macOS Screenshot folder:

Users/*Username*/Library/Application Support/Steam

Remember to replace *Username* with your macOS username.

How to find your SteamID?

If you don’t know your SteamID, you can access it by opening your Steam client. Click on view and choose settings. Go to interface and you will find a box that reads “Display Steam URL address when available”. Check it and save.

Now go over to your Steam Profile and click View profile. The number at the end located in the URL is your SteamID and you can use it to locate your saved pictures as explained previously.
