How to Access Steam Screenshots Folder on Windows PC


Smoke allows users to take screenshots while in-game. This is a great feature because whenever interesting things happen in a game, you can easily take a screenshot to conserve memory.

Now while taking a screenshot is very easy, the problem here is that some people may have trouble locating the folder where all the screenshots are automatically saved. Steam does not announce the location in advance; therefore, you will have to dig deep to find it.

If you’re having trouble locating the folder, don’t worry about it. We know how to do it easily and we are ready to share what we have learned over the years.
