Taking Screenshots Of Whole Web Pages

Have you ever wondered how you can take a screenshot of a web page but not want to have to piece together a couple different pieces? Well using Firefox there is a simple way of doing this by just using an add-on called Screengrab. You can download this add-on from: Once you have installed Screengrab it is very easy to take screenshots of entire web pages.

First you will need to have Firefox open, then you just have to right click anywhere on the page then you need to go down to where it says Screengrab or you can click on the little Screengrab icon in the bottom right hand corner. From here you have two different options to choose from. You can either choose to save the screenshot as a picture file or you can choose to copy the screenshot to the clipboard.

Two Screengrab options: Save or Copy

To save the web page as a file you will need to select save. You will then have a couple more options to choose from: Complete Page/Frame, Visible Portion, Selection, and Window. For this article I am going to use Complete Page/Frame.

Saving complete page

After you have selected which ever option you wish to use you will then get a window asking where you want to have your image saved to. Once you have the location selected and the name for the file chosen you will then need to click Save and then you are done.

Saving screenshot

Now to copy the page is the same method as saving except to use the image you will first need to paste it into some where of your choosing. That is about it for using this handy little add-on for Firefox. Have fun taking screenshots of all of your favorite web pages in just a few clicks with Screengrab.
