Screenshot Entire Webpage
Written by Hassan Abbas

Taking a screenshot of the entire page with the default print screen is a feature of Windows And even with a 3rd party program, it is pretty easy to do.However, when you need to take a screenshot of an entire webpage. That is the point when the things get a little complicated. The very first thing comes to our mind is that we might need to take multiple screenshots and then “merge” them together with any good image editor.But, what if I told you that there are other, much easier and, much more comfortable ways of screenshotting an entire webpage? Don’t believe me, well then let’s look at the ways to Screenshot Entire Webpage!

Screenshot Entire Webpage

Using the Print Feature of Chrome

Most of the modern internet browsers you can find have a built-in feature in it which is called print. You can use that print feature to take a screenshot of the entire webpage that you’re currently viewing.

However, keep in mind these two significant downsides before printing a webpage:

A print is not stored in a traditional image format but in a PDF.

The format of the webpage mostly gets messed up while printing. It’s very common to see that images are missing and that the webpage will have a slightly weird look to it.

But If these things don’t bother you, then you’ll be pleased with using this print feature. As I mentioned above, it won’t be a screenshot, to be precise. But, nonetheless it gets the job done, but only if you need to read the text of the webpage offline.

Using Browser Plugins

Using Browser Plugins is an effective and effortless way to screenshot a whole webpage. And the installation of Chrome plugins doesn’t usually take more than a few seconds.

We are going to discuss two of the most widely used plugins for web page screenshotting, Fireshot and Nimbus. Since I’m only using Chrome at the moment and I haven’t tried any other browsers.So, I’m not sure these plugins are available for other browsers, but I believe there will be.


Fireshot is the most widely used screenshot plugin that you could find. Currently, it counts 2 million people in usage and an average rating of 5/5 from its 20.000 ratings.

Fireshot works in a straightforward manner. All you need is click on it and select whether you want to screenshot the entire webpage, a just part of it, or you can choose for yourself what to capture.

Fireshot is completely free to use and it also offers a premium version for about 40 euros I believe. That’s about 50 US dollars, but these prices may vary in different countries due to inflation.However, the premium version offers one advanced editor along with capturing features, Email support, and much more.

FireFox Screenshot

Unlike Google Chrome, Firefox browser doesn’t need a third-party add-on. Their recent release, Quantum already includes a screenshot feature.You just click three dots in the URL or the Search bar and choose “Take a Screenshot”.You will be given two choices whether to capture the visible area or complete webpage.

The feature is currently in beta but it works perfectly. Not only you can take the screenshots but it can automatically save them to Firefox cloud for a quick sharing. Take a complete screenshot and a saving feature without leaving the browser.

Before you ask, this has anything to do with the Nimbus cloud we saw in the Dragon Ball Anime.This plugin works more or less in the same way as the Fireshot does but with the big exception that it also acts as a screen recorder. Pretty useful for direct video recording on a web page.
