You may need to take a screenshot of an entire web page, perhaps to share a recipe or instruction from our website. Use the built-in feature of Microsoft Edge to take full-page screenshots in JPEG format.
Full-page screenshots captured in a JPEG format (as opposed to PDF) make it easy to save and share web pages, especially when using messaging platforms such as iMessage, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp.
To get started, open the Microsoft Edge browser on your Windows 1
After opening the page, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to make sure the Web Capture feature loads all the images in the article. During our testing, we found that Edge didn’t have any images when we didn’t scroll through the page.
Now click on the Web Capture button in the toolbar. If you don’t see this, make sure you’re using the latest version of Microsoft Edge.
Select the “Full page” option here.
Now you will see the Web Capture menu. Here you can scroll to see everything you’ve captured in the screenshot (and make sure all elements, including images, are displayed).
If you want to annotate or draw over the screenshot, click the “Draw” button.
From the drop-down list next to the Draw button, select the stroke color and thickness.
Then use your cursor to draw over the screenshot. You can use the “Clear” option to remove annotations.
When you’re done, click the Save button (which looks like a floppy disk) in the toolbar.
Microsoft Edge immediately downloads the full JPEG image to the default download folder on your computer. You can click the “Open File” button in the download bar at the bottom of the window to open the screenshot.
Here you can see a long screenshot of the entire article in one continuous image. Unlike a PDF recording, it is not divided into pages. If you want to save a webpage as a paginated PDF, you can always use the Print to PDF feature in Microsoft Edge.
Do you want to capture full-page websites on your iPhone or iPad? Just use the built-in Safari feature!
