I have noticed that I can take a screenshot using the icon in the info bar at the top of the page. But, I seem to have trouble where that screenshot ends up. How do I know where that screenshot is going when I execute it? If I am trying to send that screenshot to my pictures gallery ( in Windows 7 I click on computer then click on pictures in the list that appears within my computer) where all my pictures are located, how do I do that?

  When I tried the screenshot yesterday, and executed the shot, I couldn't find where it went. I guess I need some instruction as to how do I locate where the screenshot is going. Can someone help? Thank you.

The screenshot is saved to the default folder that shows under Options/Preferences -> Downloads -> "Save files to". If you have the "Always ask" setting selected then temporarily select the "Save" setting and set that location to the Windows Pictures folder. After that you can once again select the Ask settings to make it possible to save downloads elsewhere.

I assume that you already found "Take a screenshot" in the page actions drop-down menu (three horizontal dots at the right end of the location bar). You can right-click items in the page actions drop-down list to get an icon on the location bar (Add to Address Bar).

Hi cor-el, thank you for your reply. I followed your instructions. But, I selected "save files to" in the files and applications downloads section. From there I clicked on browse and found my screenshots, and selected that. When I took a screenshot, and clicked on download, it sent the screenshot to my screenshot file in designated area within my screenshots. Just what I wanted. Yes, I can change the location where the screenshot may go by changing the category in the browse link, or use the "always ask where to save files to" option. Thank you fro your help, cor-el.
