How to Take a Screenshot of an Entire Webpage in Safari on a Mac
Taking screenshots of a webpage is a normal operation for many. Perhaps it’s to capture an image for a meme, graphs for a presentation, or to send that annoying error message to a disbelieving customer service rep. Whatever the reason, some of the standard Mac screenshot options may not do the trick.
Most of us are familiar with Shift-Command-3 to capture the entire screen, or Shift-Command-4 to capture a selected portion of a screen. You may even be familiar with Shift-Command-5 to capture a single window. But what if you want to take a scrolling screen capture of an entire webpage? The aforementioned tools can’t do that – they can only capture visible areas of your screen. So, is it even possible to take a screenshot that includes a portion of a webpage you would normally need to scroll to see?
Yes, there is! But it does take a few extra steps than just executing a single keystroke combination.
Screenshot a Webpage
- Open Safari and go to “ Safari > Preferences… “
- Click the Advanced tab and toggle on “ Show Develop menu in menu bar .”
- Navigate to the webpage you want to capture and from the Develop menu, choose “ Show Web Inspector .” Alternatively, you can hit alt-command-I (⌥⌘I).
- Select the Elements tab and right-click on the line that begins with “<html…”
- Choose Capture Screenshot
- Give it a moment to do it’s magic, and then select a name and location to save the file.
All done! Well, almost…
This could just be an issue I run into, but when capturing entire pages in this manner, there is a lot of empty container buffer around the image in the PNG file. You can see this in the Quick Preview of the file:
Let’s fix that.
- Open the file in Preview . If Preview is already your default application to open PNG files, you can simply double-click its icon.
- Drag the crosshairs in the empty area around the image. You’ll see the empty space selected and highlighted in red. Drag too far, and you’ll pick up the image itself. Don’t do that, we only want to select the empty area.
- When you let go of the mouse button, the highlighted color will disappear and be replaced with a dotted line indicating the selected area.
- Hit Shift-Command-I (⇧⌘I) to invert the selection.
- Hit Control-K (⌘K) to crop the image to the selection.
- Now you can hit Save (⌘S) and you truly are done. One cleaned up screenshot of an entire webpage.

OH man, Thank you so much for this post. it really helped me and saved a lot of my time.
Thanks for the helpful screen capture. I cannot get the clean up to work. The Shift+Command+I doesn’t work and I cannot get the Control+K to work. Can select the red area but that’s it.
Hoping you can help.
You show us how to capture OTHER web pages but NOT your own? That’s not cool dudes! If its not NOT for you, its not OK for anyone, right?
on Catalina, the part involving Preview to crop the image was a bit different, but I figured it out. Click on the show Markup Toolbar icon, then click on Rectangular Selection, then draw a box around the bit of interest, then click on “crop” in the toolbar. Repeat if needed. Zoom as needed.
Thanks for the insight!
Tried it on the article and when I try to pen saved .png I get message that either file is corrupted or can’t open the file format.
I ran into this also, then I quickly realized the file does not have the .png extension. Recaptured the screen and ensured when renaming the file, I added .png. Opened as a webpage though not as a preview. Still to figure out how to set preview as the default file opener for png files.
I’ve often wanted to do this. However, on this very page, while the initial steps seem to work, the resulting .png is un-openable by Preview or Pixelmator Pro or Quicklook. (“It may be damaged or use a file format that Preview doesn’t recognize.”)
File->Print->Save as PDF, and File->Export as PDF work as expected in Safari (full HTML-rendered page) with the added features of selectable text and extractable images in the PDFs (for those memes y’all). ~Tim~ macOS Big Sur, 11.4 Safari 14.1.1
Awesome tip! These are the articles that make it worthwhile to keep visiting Rocket Yard of OWC. Thanks. BTW an application to do it is Paparazzi! (but it does not work in all cases) https://derailer.org/paparazzi
I just tried that same Apple webpage with Safari 14.1.1 in OS 11.4. Went to File > Export as PDF… and bingo! Got a nice high-res 8.2MB PDF on my desktop instantly. Image is clean, no unexpected margins.
That works! Thank you!
Huh. I just tried that in Mojave with the latest Safari (14.1.2), using this webpage for the test.
I end up with a 20.6mb file ending in .PNG format, but which will not open. It’s either “damaged” or in a format that Preview can’t open.
In most other applications, this function would be easily performed using the Print button, and then Save as PDF. It is truly unfortunate that web developers have blocked the normal Print functionality on the web.

How To Take Full Page Screenshots In Safari For Mac
Safari comes as the default browser on Mac computers. It is a perfectly capable browser and if you prefer using native software instead of downloading third-party browsers, we get it. However, unlike Edge, there is no straightforward built-in tool for capturing full page screenshots in Safari.
We’re not sure if Apple ever plans to introduce the feature in an easier manner, but don’t worry, if capturing full page screenshots is something you’re interested in, there are ways around this problem which we will cover in the guide below, so read on to find out.
Saving Websites As PDFs
What’s interesting about this method is that if you try to take a scrolling screenshot on an iPhone , it actually saves as a PDF, so this method is pretty similar.
- Open Safari
- Go to the website you want to capture
- Click on Show Reader View
- From the menu, select File > Export as PDF
- Choose the location and name and click Save
Note that because you’re saving it as a PDF file, it is actually not an image file. The upside to this method is that if you have a PDF editor, you can actually make some edits to the file like adding notes. The downside is that it is equally easy for someone else to make the same edits if they have the file, versus images which might be slightly trickier to manipulate seamlessly.
Using Safari’s Developer Tools
Similar to how Google approaches full page screenshots with Chrome, it appears that Apple has also hidden its full page screenshot tool for Safari behind its developer tools.
- Click on Develop > Show Web Inspector
- In the newly opened window, right click the very first line that reads “html”
- Select Capture Screenshot
- Save the file
The upside to this method is that if you don’t need to capture the entire page, you can just highlight portions of the code that you want to capture, but that’s assuming you know what you’re looking at. Also, Apple already built-in screen capture tools into macOS that will work in Safari (except it doesn’t do full page captures), so that would be an easier method than this.
Using Awesome Screenshot Extension For Safari
If neither of the options above sound appealing to you, then you might be interested to learn that you can use a browser extension for Safari called Awesome Screenshot that makes the entire process a lot simpler.
- Download and install the Awesome Screenshot extension
- Once the extension is installed, go to the website you want to capture
- Click the extension’s icon and select Capture entire page
- You can now make edits to the screenshot if you want
- When you’re ready to save it, click the download icon and it’ll save it to your computer
Using TechSmith’s Snagit Desktop Tool
If you don’t mind paying for software, then perhaps TechSmith’s Snagit could be the end-all to all your screenshot needs. This is because Snagit won’t just work with Safari, but it will work across your Mac so in addition to capturing websites, you can use the Snagit tool to capture other screenshots like from applications, games, and so on.
- Download and install Snagit
- Launch Snagit and click the “All-In-One” tab to the left
- Click the Capture button
- Select the area of the website you want to capture and click the “Launch a Panoramic Capture” button
- Click start and start scrolling down the website and click Stop when you’re done
Keep in mind that Snagit is not free. There is a free trial that you can check out to see if this is what you want, but once the trial is up, you’ll have to pay $50 for a single-user license. It is expensive, but if you think you can get your money’s worth, why not?

How to Take Full-Page Screenshots in Safari on iOS
Most web pages don't fit in a single screenshot, but this iPhone feature lets you save them to a scrollable PDF instead.
In iOS 13 and later, iPhones and iPads can take scrolling screenshots that capture entire webpages in Safari. The best part is that it's almost exactly like taking a standard screenshot. But, instead of saving a screen-sized image, you save the full page as a scrollable PDF.
Here’s how to take scrolling screenshots in Safari.
How to Take a Full-Page Screenshot of a Webpage
To take a scrolling screenshot of a full webpage in Safari, follow these steps:
Open Safari and navigate to the webpage you want to screenshot.
Press the volume up button and the power button simultaneously to take a screenshot. If your iPhone has a Home button, press the Home button and the power button instead. (Learn how to take screenshots without a power button .)
Tap the Full Page option in the toggle near the top of the screen.
The view will change slightly to show the top portion of the scrolling screenshot and, next to it, a miniaturized overview of the entire screenshot down the side. You can scroll the main view of the screenshot by swiping up and down with two fingers.
Dragging the highlighted box on the miniaturized view to the right lets you quickly move the screenshot.
While you’re viewing the screenshot, crop it by tapping the Crop button (which looks like a square with overlapping lines) in the top toolbar. You can also edit it using the markup tools along the bottom of your iPhone’s screen.
When you’re finished cropping and marking up the screenshot, tap the Share button to save it to Files or send it to another app. Your iPhone will save the full webpage as a long, single-page PDF document.
If you want to delete the screenshot without saving it, tap Done and then tap Delete Screenshot .
Other apps can support the full-page screenshot feature, too. Apple’s Mail app is one example; however, it saves a paginated PDF rather than a scrollable single-page file.
One Screenshot Is Better Than Two
Previously, iOS users depended on third-party scrolling screenshot apps to share long webpages. Now, the feature is built right into iOS and works just like a standard screenshot. Once you’ve learned this skill, there are even more ways of taking screenshots on an iPhone to discover.

How to Screenshot An Entire Webpage on Mac
In iOS, Apple's Safari browser includes a built-in screenshot feature that lets you capture entire webpages on your iPhone or iPad for sharing elsewhere.
Note that in step 4, you can drag or click on the page to select a region and then save just that region by clicking Download , or you can save just the visible area of the page by clicking Save visible in the top-right corner.
Tip: You can also customize the Firefox toolbar to add a Screenshot button. Click the Menu button (three lines) in the top-right corner of the browser window. A special tab will open, where you can drag and drop items in or out of the overflow menu and the toolbar. Simply drag the Screenshot item (the cutting scissors icon) to the toolbar, then click Done .

How to take a full-page screenshot in any iPhone app
In this tutorial, we will show you how to take a full-page screenshot in Apple apps like Safari, Mail, Notes, Maps, and Files, as well as any other non-Apple apps like Google Chrome, Firefox, WhatsApp, Telegram, and more.
If you’ve ever wanted to send a screenshot that shows more than what’s on your screen, then you may want to consider sending a full-page scrolling screenshot.
The process is similar to taking a regular screenshot , but with a full-page version, you get to share more.
Use the built-in full-page screenshot tool on iPhone
iOS has a native option to capture the entire web page, note, email, PDF, or map in one go and save it as an image to the Photos app, or as a PDF to the Files app.
This native screenshot tool works with Safari (when you’re on a web page) and a few other Apple apps like Notes (when you’re inside a note), Mail (when you’re inside an individual email), the Files app (when you’ve opened a PDF), and Apple Maps (when you’ve a map on the screen).
The steps to capture a full-page screenshot in all these apps are similar. We’ve used Safari for this tutorial.
- Open Safari , Notes , Mail , Files , or Maps on your iPhone or iPad.
- Take a screenshot as you would normally do by pressing the Volume Up + Side button .
- Now tap the screenshot preview that appears on the bottom corner of the screen.
- Select Full Page from the top. A new preview window will appear next to the screenshot, where you can scroll to see the entire screen. You can also Markup and crop the screenshot.
- Finally, tap Done and select Save to Photos or Save PDF to Files .
The scrolling screenshot of the Safari web page or the concerned app is now ready. Depending on where you saved it, you’ll find it inside the Photos or Files app.
Crop the screenshot
Before saving the screenshot, you can also make changes to it. For example, you can use the Markup tools or crop the screenshot to remove any unwanted parts of the web page or the screen grab. To do that, tap the Crop button on top of the screen and adjust the screenshot per your requirement. After that, tap Done > Done and save it.
Don’t see the ‘Save to Photos’ option?
While the ability to save a full-screen capture as a PDF via the above method has existed for several years, you can save them as an image to the Photos app only on iOS 17 and later . So, make sure you update your iPhone to get the “Save to Photos” option.
Secondly, you won’t see the “Save to Photos” option if the web page, PDF, note, or email is extremely lengthy . However, it should have you covered for most web articles. In case the on-page ads make the screenshot lengthy, use Safari Reader Mode to strip the ads and then take a screenshot.

Take a scrolling screenshot in all other iPhone apps
Thanks to third-party apps like Picsew (paid version – $1.99), you can take scrolling screenshots anywhere you scroll vertically, like Chrome, Firefox, WhatsApp, Telegram, Gmail, App Library, Messages, Calendars, Reminders, and more, provided that particular app has not blocked the screenshot feature .
Here’s how to take a scrolling, long-form, full-page screenshot on any iPhone and iPad screen:
1) Download Picsew from the App Store. Now, open it and tap the gear icon > Advanced Features to upgrade to its Pro version.
2) Make sure the screen recording icon is added to your iPhone Control Center. If not, go to Settings > Control Center and tap the green plus icon for Screen Recording .
3) Be in the browser, app, or screen whose long screenshot you wish to take. From here, open the Control Center:
- On iPhone with Face ID, swipe down from the top right corner.
- On iPhone with a Home button, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen.
4) Long-press the screen recording icon .
5) Select Picsew and tap Start Broadcasting . You have three seconds to tap any empty area in the Control Center to return to the screen whose long screenshot you want.
6) While Picsew is recording your screen (you will see a red pill shape or bar on top of your screen), scroll the page .
7) Once you have scrolled to the desired length (in the screenshots below, you can see I have scrolled from the top of the article to the bottom), tap the red pill shape or red bar from the top of your iPhone to stop the screen recording. At times, you might also see a notification from Picsew saying it has finished the screen recording.
8) Open Picsew from the popup or the Home Screen.
9) The app has already stitched several images one after another, creating a long screenshot. Optionally, you can use the tiny yellow pencil icon to adjust individual images. Once done, tap the share icon from the top right and export it as an image or PDF.
Here’s how the saved full-page, long screenshot looks in the iPhone Photos app:

Ratings and Reviews
I played around with this a lot to get it to work on my mac and on the iphone. I could get full page jpegs in some settings, but that was hit-or-miss, and not always in the correct settings. I could never get a pdf, split the page into usuable jpeg sizes, or do anything else with this app. Overall, disappointing.
Doesn't Support Scrollable Regions or Live Text in PDFs
I love supporting indie developers but was sad to see that this app was missing two features I'd expect from a paid app. The first of which is a real dealbreaker. TLDR: For most users the free FireShot app is good enough. I'd gladly increase my review to 5 stars if the developer can address point 1 (and I'd love point 2). Missing features: 1) The app doesn't work for scrollable regions on sites with fixed headers and footers - I mostly need this app to take screenshots of Zendesk chat conversations. Zendesk has a fixed-height header, footer and side bar but leaves most of the page to a scrolling conversation box (which contains 100% of the content I need to save). Because only the box scrolls, not the page, this app doesn't capture any of the hidden content. It's therefore unusable for my main use case. 2) PDF exports don't have live text - FireShot is a free app that actually works perfectly for use case 1. But they charge $35 for their pro version which provides live, highlightable text in PDF exports. I had hoped that Page Screenshot would offer this feature for $2.99 but sadly all the PDF exports do NOT have live text. For most sites, this app would be good enough but I wish I had known the above going in. A watermarked free trial would have helped me test whether or not this was a good investment. Best of luck to the devs. Hope they can fix these issues. Will gladly revise my review if they do so.
Quite satisfied with this app
This is a great Safari add-on for anyone who's looking for increased productivity. I don't see any compression/artifact issues like in one of the negative reviews, so I believe this has been fixed. Overall, it's very lightweight, gets the job done and does it well. I will add that that initially wanted to rate this app 4 stars because I think it could use some extra features/settings that I've found in other free page capture apps. Granted, some of those were buggier than this app, but they had some features that this paid add-on did not. I would love to be able to have a setting that allows one to either click the icon once and create an auto-capture of the full page auto-download to a previously specified location. Otherwise, always using a 2-step process to first click the icon and then select what kind of capture download to use can become frustrating if you're going for speed, or have to screencapture many different webpages all the time. Beyond that, great product and great app. Thanks Mr. Alexandru!

How to screen record on your mac.
Recording your screen on Mac is easier than ever.
Open the screenshot utility on mac, set your screen recording options, record your screen.
Screen recording on Mac was vastly improved with macOS Mojave (first introduced in 2018). With nothing but a built-in application, you can capture sound, mouse clicks, portions of your screen, and more. Here's how to screen record on your Mac.
You can use the same tool to screen record that you do to take screenshots . Open up the Screenshot app using one of these methods:
- Press Command+Shift+5.
- Use Spotlight (Command+Space), search for "Screenshot," and choose the app from the results.
- Open the Applications folder using Finder and then click Go > Utilities from the menu bar at the top of your screen and select "Screenshot."
When you open Screenshot, you'll see a toolbar at the bottom of your screen. The three options on the left of the toolbar are for screenshots, so you'll start with the middle two for recordings.
One option is for recording your whole screen. Click "Record Entire Screen" to do this.
The other option is for selecting just a portion of it. If you only want to capture part of your screen, click "Record Selected Portion." Then, drag the dotted shape where you want it to go and resize it by dragging an edge or a corner.
Before you start recording, click "Options." At the top of the list, you can pick a spot to save your recording. Then, you can get into some handy recording features.
When you need a few moments to prepare what's on your screen for the recording, use the Timer. You can pick 5 or 10 seconds from the time you hit Record until the recording begins.
If you want to include audio with your recording, select "Built-in Microphone." This is ideal for explaining what you're recording.
The "Show Floating Thumbnail" option is useful if you'll be demonstrating how to take a screenshot. As you know, a thumbnail appears in the corner of your screen by default.
Need to show the steps that you're taking on the screen? Use the "Show Mouse Clicks" option. When you enable this, each click of your mouse displays as a circle. That way, your audience can see the steps in a sequence, or even in a single, helpful click.
If you change your mind about recording your screen, you can simply close the Screenshot app. Either click the "X" on the left of the toolbar or press your Escape key.
Once you have your options set, it's time to record. Hit the "Record" button in the Screenshot toolbar. If you turned on the timer, you'll see how much time you have left to get ready on the Record button.
A small Stop button will appear in your menu bar as you capture your screen. Click that button to stop recording.
Then head to the location that you chose to save the recording in to view the video. You can then open the recording using the built-in Preview program your favorite video editing application.
If you've got an iPhone, it's a cinch to record your iPhone screen too.

Full page screenshot in Safari
Is there a way to take a screenshot of the entire page, not just what's visible in the window, in Safari? This would typically involve the ability to scroll while taking the screenshot. I cannot find how to do this unless using a 3rd party app. Thanks
iMac 21.5″, macOS 10.15

Here is a solution that does not require the use of third-party applications.
- Open Safari and navigate to the webpage.
- Show Reader View if available and preferred.
- From the menu bar, select File > Export as PDF > [Location] > Save .
Alternatively, this can also be done on an iPhone.
- Take a screenshot , then tap on the thumbnail to edit.
- Tap Full Page > Done > Save PDF to Files > [Location] > Save .
- Share the PDF file with your Mac using AirDrop , iCloud Drive , or another method.
- Open the PDF file in Preview.
- Select File > Export > [Location] and Format: HEIC/JPEG/PNG > Save .

Safari 14 does no have a image-based screen capture for the entire web page.
You can print, or export the page content to PDF, or if it is indicated as a Safari Reader page, then choose that, so you will have a reformatted page without advertisements to export to PDF.

Gary: might be worth mentioning that in many cases the Reader version of a web page may more desirable, especially the ones that have a lot of extra graphics not related to the content. I really like it for saving text of very long and busy pages to read later on my iPad.
I copied a page using Firefox "screenshot" then "save full page" i pasted into Notes and got a perfect copy. Much better quality than print to pdf. Thanks Gary
Lots of options. Think you might be able to summarize on a simple table?
Microsoft Edge (on Windows and Mac) has a way that is similar to how Firefox does it. I use it all that time.
Gary.... I love the thumbnail/picture on this article... it is spot on and very fun. Thanks for all you do to make our gadget experiences better.

Need to Take a Screenshot With Windows 11? Here's How
There are multiple ways you can take a screenshot when you're using a computer running Windows 11.
Here are four different ways you can take a screenshot with Windows 11.
There are tons of reasons you might need to take a screenshot. You might need to send someone a photo of your screen over Slack to diagnose a problem, or you might need to screenshot a snippet of an important document to save for later. It doesn't matter why you need to take a screenshot, there are several ways to get the job done on your Windows 11 computer.
Whether you want to take a full-screen grab, want to capture only part of the screen, or prefer to use a keyboard shortcut or application, the process is pretty simple. Read on for all the ways you can take a screenshot with Windows 11.
Don't have Windows 11 yet? Check out these two important things you need to do before you can download Windows 11 . And if you're unsure about updating, read more about the major differences between Windows 11 and Windows 10 .
1. Take a screenshot of the entire screen
The easiest way to take a screenshot of your entire desktop is with the PrtSc key at the top of your keyboard. After tapping on the PrtSc key, the screenshot will be saved to your clipboard, although you won't receive any indication the screenshot has successfully been taken. To view the full-screen screenshot, use Ctrl-V to paste it into an application like Paint or Microsoft Word, or even into the body of an email.
2. Take a screenshot of the entire screen and save it to your computer
Similar to the first option, hitting the Windows-PrtSc keys will take a screenshot of your entire desktop, but it'll also save the screenshot to a folder on your computer. If you hit the keys correctly, your whole screen will flash, indicating the screenshot has been taken and saved. You can find all of your full-screen screenshots in Pictures > Screenshots .
You can take four types of screenshots: rectangular, freeform, window and full-screen.
3. Take a screenshot of only part of the screen
Not everyone wants a screenshot of their entire screen, which is why Windows 11 gives you the option to take only a partial screenshot. If you tap on Win + Shift + S , your screen will flash and a small Snipping Tool menu will appear at the top of the screen, allowing you to do the following (from left to right):
- Rectangular Snip: Draw a box around what you want to capture.
- Freeform Snip: Draw any shape around what you want to capture.
- Window Snip: Choose a window to capture.
- Full-screen Snip: Capture your entire screen (same thing as PrtScr).
Once the screenshot's taken, it'll be saved to your clipboard, as with the PrtScr key option. You can then paste it elsewhere to look at it. However, if you click the Snipping Tool preview that appears at the bottom of the screen, you'll find options to edit the screenshot (crop, rotate and more) and save it to your desktop.
You can delay your screenshot by 3, 5 or 10 seconds.
4. Use the Snipping Tool to take delayed screenshots
The Snipping Tool comes built into Windows 11, and is the same tool used in the previous section, except with a few tiny additions. To use it, type in Snipping Tool in the Search feature and open the application to take a screenshot.
In Snipping Tool, if you click on New you'll open the mini Snipping Tool menu (like in the section before), where you can then choose between several different snips. However, with this full version of the Snipping Tool, you can choose any of the four snipping options (rectangular, freeform, window and fullscreen) and then choose a delay option. You can choose between a 3-, 5- and 10-second delay. This will give you a bit of time to set up whatever it is you're attempting to screenshot and might make it easier than taking the shot manually.
To take the delayed screenshot, simply hit Win-Shift-S , which will then be copied to your clipboard. You can also click on the screenshot preview that appears to make any edits or save it to your computer as a JPEG, PNG or other.
