Screenshot means a picture of the current or active window on the screen. These days, you can take a screenshot on any device may it Android Smartphone, iPhone, Mac, Windows.

To take a screenshot on Windows, all you need to press “Window key+ PrtSc”. You would see a blink on the screen which means that screenshot has been captured. By default, screenshot gets saved in This PC > Pictures > Screenshot. Another way to capture screenshot is “Alt+PrtSc”. In this, screenshot gets copied to the clipboard and you can paste it into any word processor or in any photo editing software.

But, if you share a lot of screenshot for any purposes, it gets little inconvenient to first fetch the screenshot folder then to copy or cut those screenshot to the desired folder. But you can change screenshot location to any desired folder.
