While browsing the internet, you may come across some excellent webpage or text that you want to share with your friends or family. In such a case, you will either send the link to the webpage or take a screenshot of the specific part of the page. Alternatively, you will convert the entire website into a PDF file.
Although you can save the entire webpage as a PDF on Windows 11/10, it is pretty easy to take a screenshot of part of the webpage. Luckily, Mozilla Firefox has an inbuilt provision to take a screenshot of the specific part of the website that you would like to save on your PC. In this gearupwindows article, we will share the steps to take a screenshot of part of the webpage. That means there is no need to make the entire web page PDF or download a third-party plugin to take a screenshot of a specific part of the web page.
How to Take Screenshots Using Built-in Screenshot Tool in Mozilla Firefox?
Mozilla Firefox includes an exciting feature to take the screenshot. To grab a screenshot of the specific part of a webpage or the whole webpage, perform the following steps:-
Step 1: Visit the webpage that you want to take a screenshot of in the Mozilla Firefox browser.
Step 2: Right-click anywhere on the web page on Windows 11/10 and select the Take Screenshot option.
Step 3. In the top right corner of your screen, you will see two options: Save full Page and Save visible. To capture the entire webpage, click on the Save full page option. At the same time, grab the visual window of the opened webpage by clicking on the Save visible option.
To capture a particular area of the opened web page, drag or click on the webpage to select the location you want to capture. If you change your mind and don’t want to take a screenshot, simply press the Esc key to cancel the process. Alternatively, click on the cross (x) button.
Step 4. Once you have captured the web page’s desired area, you will get two options to save it. Clicking the Copy option will add the screenshot to your clipboard so that you can paste it anywhere on the supported program, for instance, chat, email, or MS Word document. At the same time, the Download option allows you to save the screenshot as an image file on your computer.
Depending on the selection, you should be able to share the screenshot or save a local copy of the screenshot on your Windows 11/10 computer.
