Google Chrome has been the most popular browser for several years, offering tons of features that make it easier for users to browse the internet. However, the browser lacks a few features, but the company has now introduced support for one of them — a built-in screenshot tool.
The Chrome web browser now comes with a built-in screenshot tool that enables users to take screenshots of any webpage without needing to install any third-party extensions. It appears as a part of the “Share” menu in the address bar and supports a few tools for annotating screenshots.
- Open the Google Chrome browser on your Windows computer or laptop
- Go to the flags settings page or enter this – chrome://flags – in the address search bar.
- Here, find the “Desktop screenshots” option using the search bar.
- Now, use the drop-down menu next to the “Desktop Screenshots” option and select “Desktop Screenshots Edit Mode.”
- You will need to select the “Enabled” option.
- Once you make the changes, the Chrome browser will ask to relaunch the page. Tap on the “Relaunch” button.
Now, the built-in screenshot tool of the Google Chrome browser is ready. Next up, we see how to take screenshots using the device.
