Unlike the previous versions of Windows which requires the use of third-party Softwares like “Greenshot” or launching the default Snipping tool, it's now much more convenient using just one key combination.
By default, all screenshots taken by the new 'screenshot tool' in Windows 8 are saved in the directory C:\Users\
Nevertheless, you might want to move the default folder to a new directory in order to make it easier to locate and backup.
Therefore, in this tutorial I'll be putting you through the easy steps of going about this.
Note » This method works on both Windows 8 and Windows RT.
HERE'S HOW TO GO ABOUT IT...
- Open the Windows explorer and navigate to C:\Users\
\Pictures\Screenshots- Replace " " with your Pc's User name.
- Right-click in the 'Screenshots folder' and select Properties from the list of options in the popup menu.
- Click the “Location” tab on the "Properties" box and then click on the “Move” button.
- Navigate to the NEW folder you wish to use as the DEFAULT folder and then click Select Folder.
- Click “OK” to accept the new changes.
- Finally, you'll see a Move folder dialog box asking if you want to move all existing files from the previous folder to the new default folder.
Click ‘Yes’ to accept or ‘No’ to cancel it.
To restore the default location i.e C:\Users\
