Screenshots are widely used nowadays, for personal, professional reasons or even as proof of "charge". Virtually any user has ever taken a screenshot either from a mobile device or a computer. However, sometimes we want to take a complete capture of something that comes out of the screen, such as a website visited in your browser.

Surely, you have ever wanted to take a complete capture of a Web page, especially if you are dedicated to the world of Web design or the Internet. However, by default, Windows allows you to take screenshots but only of what is shown on the screen of your computer or laptop. This means that if a visited website is longer than the height of your screen, in order to capture the entire Web, you will have to take several screenshots until it is completely captured..
However, what many users do not know is that both the Google Chrome web browser and the Mozilla Firefox browser allow, by default, to take full screen captures in a single image file (scrolling screenshot). This will not require installing or using plugins or programs, although to be honest, the default feature of full screen captures is somewhat hidden.
Having said this, we want to show you step by step how to take a screenshot of a complete web page from the Chrome or Firefox browser without using an extension or plugin:
