How To Access Steam Screenshot Folder

Have you ever made a Steam screenshot and wanted to share on Reddit or rave about it to your friends but got confused on how to find your screenshots? No worries, here are a few methods on how to Access Steam Screenshot Folder.

First Method

  1. Open Steam.
  2. From the menu that’s on the very top of the Steam client window click on ‘View’.
  3. From the list that drops down choose ‘Screenshots’ and click on it. When you will click on it, that will open the Steam Screenshot Uploader tool.
  4. Then select any photo that you see there and right-click on it and then click on ‘Show On Disk’.
  5. Steam will then automatically open the folder where the screenshots are stored on your computer.

This Steam Screenshot tool is also useful for keeping track of how many images you have. The images are classified by game, the drop-down menu in the top right of the Steam Client window. So it’s very easy to find a specific screenshot that you want to fid just by choosing the game. It’s also easy to find the images that you no longer want to keep. Also, this tool helps you to upload your images to the cloud that’s very useful if something were to suddenly happen to your hard drive. To upload the screenshots to the cloud just select the screenshots and click on ‘Upload’.

To access these screenshots that you have uploaded to your cloud-based Online Library just click on ‘View Online Library’ that’s right next to the ‘Show On Disk’ button. When you open your Online Library you can easily share photos with friends, make them public or private, upload or delete etc.

Second Method

It is also possible for you to access your Steam screenshot folder by not opening Steam at all. So the location of the folder depends on the user, where you have installed Steam is also important. Usually, the folder can be found C/D/E:Program Files\Steam\userdata\*Steam ID*\760\remote\

The drive letter depends on the name of the primary local drive, generally, that’s the one where Windows is installed. And the Steam ID is unique for every user. Every game has a folder that has a random numerical title. So opening one of the folders and clicking on ‘Screenshots’  folder found within shows all the screenshots that are associated with the game.

If you don’t know how to find your Steam ID you can just force it and open every folder until you find the one that contains your game screenshots. Or just follow these steps to find out your Steam ID:

  1. Open Steam and from the menu at the very top click on ‘View’ and then click on ‘Settings’.
  2. From the menu on the left select ‘Interface’.
  3. See if the ‘Display Steam URL address when available’ box is ticked and then click on ‘OK’ at the bottom.
  4. Then click on your Steam profile name and from the menu that drops down choose ‘Profile’.
  5. Look at the URL that you can see at the top of the window that is just below the menu that features ‘Store’, ‘Library’, ‘Community’ etc. You will see a very long number there, that number is your Steam ID.
