Whether you are just a beginner or have learned almost everything about this software, you can save a screenshot in Lightshot pretty easily. This tool has come as a surprise gift to many bloggers and photo editors lately. Thus, if you have any doubts about any function or have any difficulty getting it to work, you can find related information on the web. As the saying goes, big surprises come in a small package, and none can be a better example than this lightweight snipping tool. Without further ado, let’s check how to change Lightshot save location as you want.
Capture Image and Change Lightshot Save Location
Follow these steps to take a screenshot, then change the default save location for Lightshot:
- Launch the Lightshot tool from the taskbar by going to the small arrow and left-click the Lightshot icon.
- Select the desired screen area to capture the screenshot.
- Click the Save icon at the bottom of the selection panel. By default, Lightshot save location on Windows is: C:\Users\Username\Documents\Lightshot
- Use the interface to select a custom location to save the screenshot. The next time you save your image (BMP, PNG, or JPEG), it will be saved in the same directory you choose. That’s because Lightshot remembers the most recent one.
Reminder: Unfortunately, this trick works on Windows/Mac only. If you tried to make it work through a browser extension, you’d see the default Lightshot save location is Documents.
Even with that limitation, Lightshot dominates other snapping tools in terms of features and interoperability. Especially when it comes to capturing customized screenshots from web pages, games, and even secure PDFs. You can edit, crop, or highlight the important content and upload the finished images in PNG, JPEG, or BMP formats later. Since everything you do on Lightshot is free, you can also upload your collection directly to prntscr.com. Want an easy way to do it? Try the shortcut “Ctrl + D.”
