I need a little help. Recently got a new laptop with windows 8 (not sure if it matters) and i've gone through both the Program Files and the Program File(x86) and the screenshot folder is no where to be found. I've even done a search on every one of my folders for screenshots and nothing. The game recognizes me taking them with the on screen message but when i go to look for them, they're just not there.
Any help is appreciated
the screenshots should go into a subfolder of wow. let me dig around and see if i can.....will go take a screen shot and post once i find it.
Took a screenshot, and it went directly to C:\\Program Files (x86)\\World of Warcraft\\Screenshots. Are you sure that you are using the correct button to take your screenshots? I know it is the PrintScreen button on my laptop and that is set to Blizz standard.
I've even done a search on every one of my folders for screenshots and nothing.
The internal file search is getting worse with each version of Windows, maybe try a third-party search tool (be sure it has explicit support for at least Vista/7)
Click on the computer icon on your desktop app. If you do not have it, right click on the desktop and click Personalize. In the new window on the left side, choose "Change desktop icons" Put a check mark next to User Folder, and Computer. Click apply then OK. Go back to desktop, double click the computer icon, then double click your windows drive (Usually C:). Top right of that window is a search pane, do a search for the following Without quotes. ".jpg" or ".png" (I'm not sure which file type it is saved as) This will search your entire C drive for the photo types. Once it finds the file, right click on it and choose open file location. This should take you to the directory where it is stored. Look at the address bar at the top and it will give you the path i.e. C:\\Programs Files\\ect\\ect
I know this is an old post, but I thought I might update it a little. I currently have windows and had a hell of a time trying to find my screenshots. I didn't find it under the usual place.
I had to go to
Computer, Cdrive, Users, Public, Games, World of Warcraft, Screenshots.
Typically the WoW folder would have been under Program files, but it was not. I hope this might help anyone that is having trouble finding them in the usual way.
I know it is the PrintScreen button on my laptop and that is set to Blizz standard.?
