What are the steps to take a screenshot using the "Easy Screenshot" extension?
To capture a screenshot using this extension, follow these instructions:
Can you tell me where the "Easy Screenshot" extension stores the screenshots that have been captured?
This extension saves all captured screenshots in the default download directory of your browser. If you want to change the storage location, you will need to modify the default download directory settings in your browser. Another option is to enable the feature that prompts you to select the destination folder for each capture, allowing you to choose a specific directory (this feature is disabled on Manifest v3).
Starting from version 0.1.9, you can click on the notification bubble to directly access and open the download directory.
Here are the default download directories for different operating systems:
[Deprecated] Although the extension is installed and I can see the context menu items still nothing happens when I click on the items. What is wrong?
If you have just installed the extension, make sure to refresh the page before using the extension. Easy Screen needs to inject a tiny script to the page for guidelines to appear when you start capturing screen.
What is the reason behind using the PNG format for its screen recordings?
The "Easy Screenshot" extension utilizes the PNG format for its screen recordings due to several advantages it offers. PNG is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression, ensuring high-quality screenshots. It is particularly well-suited when capturing a combination of text and images, as it preserves sharpness and clarity. If you prefer a different format for your screenshots, you can achieve that by opening the captured screenshot with an image viewer and saving it into the desired format of your choice.
Is the quality of the captured image affected by the screen resolution?
Indeed, the quality of the captured image is influenced by the screen resolution. When taking a screenshot, the extension captures the pixels within the designated image area. Therefore, screens with higher resolutions, such as Retina displays, contain more pixels, resulting in more detailed screenshots with enhanced clarity.
How does the "Easy Screenshot" extension handle capturing screenshots of pages larger than the screen size?
The "Easy Screenshot" extension employs a scrolling technique to device the page into smaller segments that fit into the viewport. It scrolls the page both horizontally and vertically, covering the entire content. These individual pieces of the page are subsequently merged to form a complete screenshot. It is important to note that the extension requires a few seconds to scroll and capture the entire screen. During this process, it is advised not to attempt scrolling the page manually to avoid interfering with the operation.

The "Easy Screenshot" extension offers a convenient solution for capturing screenshots within your browser. Unlike the default print screen functions, which require additional steps to save or edit the screenshot, this extension enables you to capture various parts of your screen or the entire screen with just one button press. The captured screenshots are automatically saved to a specific directory outside the extension, allowing easy access to presentations, references, and more. Furthermore, installing the "Easy Screenshot" extension does not require restarting your browser, ensuring a hassle-free experience with minimal impact on browser memory and CPU usage. Key features of the "Easy Screenshot" extension include multiple capture options. You can capture the entire screen, the visible area, or specific portions based on your preferences. By simply right-clicking anywhere on the page, you can also choose to capture visual segments that fall outside of your predefined preferences. This extension is highly compatible with various browsers and saves all screenshots in PNG format, with the titles of the respective web pages for quick reference. The screenshots are conveniently stored in a single directory, allowing easy management and retrieval.
