Taking full page screenshots from Chrome Dev Tools

This was news to me. Turns out you no longer have to use an addon or manually stitch together images to create a screenshot of a page that’s longer than your viewing area. All you have to do is:

  • Right click, choose Inspect element
  • Pick the <body> tag
  • Now, press Ctrl+Shift+P (or Cmd+Shift+P if you’re on Mac)
  • Type screenshot and choose ‘Capture full page screenshot’. You’ve got one 🙂
