Save screenshots to OneDrive automatically [MS]

Save screenshots to OneDrive automatically

If you have Microsoft OneDrive on your PC, and you capture a screenshot, you might be asked if you want to automatically save your screenshots to OneDrive.

  1. Select the white OneDrive cloud icon in the Windows taskbar notification area.

    (You might need to click the Show hidden icons arrow The Show hidden icons button. next to the notification area to see the OneDrive icon. If the icon doesn't appear in the notification area, OneDrive might not be running. Select Start, type OneDrive in the search box, and then select OneDrive in the search results.)

  2. Select OneDrive Help and Settings iconHelp & Settings > Settings.

  3. On the Backup tab, check the Automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive box.

    The OneDrive Settings pane, showing the Backup panel, with the 'Automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive' box checked.

    Note: Screenshots can't be more than 10 GB in size. Some kinds of content are also prohibited. For more info, check the code of conduct. For work-related screenshots, we recommend using OneDrive for work or school.

Screenshots will still be saved to your Clipboard as before, so you can immediately paste them. They'll also be saved to the "OneDrive/Pictures/Screenshots" folder on your PC and automatically uploaded to your online storage. You can get to the folder by using File Explorer, by going to the OneDrive website, or by using the OneDrive mobile apps.

Note: If you want to take screenshots that you don't want uploaded immediately, temporarily turn off your network connection before you take screenshots and while you make any changes to them.
