I'm trying to capture a scrolling page using windows 8 snip tool. I've tried the window capture option but it just captures the visible part of the page, not the part that would be revealed by scrolling. any ideas?

  • Capture for what purpose? what type of page? A web page? – Moab May 17 '15 at 19:04

    yes a web page or any scrolling window. I do not prefer specifying the application whose window I'm trying to capture since I'm looking for a general solution. I know there are browser plugins that capture whole page but I'm looking for a way to do it using Windows snipping tool. – Ejaz May 17 '15 at 21:28

Google Chrome includes a built-in screenshot tool, but it's a bit hidden. You'll first enter two sets of keyboard shortcuts, then enter a command to capture a full-page screenshot of any web page. Start by using the shortcut pairs below—enter the first shortcut, followed by the second—depending on your operating system:

On Mac 1. Alt + Command + I 2. Command + Shift + P

On Windows/Linux/Chrome OS 1. Ctrl + Shift + I 2. Ctrl + Shift + P

These keyboard shortcuts will open Chrome's developer menu. Just type "screenshot" and you'll see the option appear to "capture full size screenshot." Simply select this and Chrome will automatically save a full-page screenshot to your Downloads folder!


AFAIK, this is not possible, not with Windows Snipping tool!


There is a third party tool name SnagIt, It can scroll and capture as well. There is also another free tool PicPick you can download it from here "http://ngwin.com/picpick/download_start"

  • The "scrolling window" capture is quite awesome. – Patrick Roberts Jul 27 '18 at 18:42
