Snapshot: how to capture the web
How many times have you wanted to take screenshots of a webpage but you’ve had to capture the whole desktop to do so? Opera saves you this rigmarole by giving you the option to capture a webpage direct from the browser with its brand new Snapshot feature.

To use Snapshot you can either click on the new camera icon or use the shortcut keys: Ctrl + Shift + 5 in Windows or ⌘ + ⇧ + 5 in macOS.

After doing so, you’ll open an adjustable frame that allows to select the exact part of the web pagethat you want to capture. This enables you to scroll down so that you can capture more of the webpage than is visible on the screen at any one time. You can aslo capture the whole screen very quickly.

All images will be saved in the .png format, in a folder of your choice, or captured temporarily on your PC’s clipboard.
