How to Find and Backup Steam Screenshots

11858 technical support

Steam has a built-in screenshot function that uses the F12 key by default to capture a picture of the game you’re playing. Access is a bit complicated as Steam divides them with the game and hides them behind a bunch of folders.

Where are the Screenshots?

We’re using Windows for our example here. Linux and macOS work the same, but have different folder names.

Steam stores screenshots on your Windows PC in the following folder:

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\{Your Steam ID}\760\remote\{The Game’s ID}\screenshots”

The problem is that it is separated by the game and you are probably not sure which game “252490” it is.

It’s much easier to access screenshots of the game by right-clicking the game in your library and clicking “View Screenshots” from the drop-down menu.

This will open a dialog where you can view all your screenshots and click the “Show on Disk” button at the bottom to open the folder with all screenshots.

The “Upload” function in this dialog will send the screenshot to your Steam profile (or optionally Facebook).

Once you have the actual files, you can back them up however you want, whether it’s just putting them in a different folder or uploading them to a cloud service like Dropbox. If you want to backup screenshots of each game, you have to either do it manually or backup the entire \760\remote\ folder containing all folders for each game. There doesn’t seem to be a way to view them all in one folder at once.
