Taking screenshots on your Windows 10 PC serves as an indispensable part in your workflow, as this helps you share everything from your computer on social networks like Facebook or Twitter. Taking screenshots on a PC is not a difficult task, you just need to use the different native commands like Win+PrtScn or Alt+PrtScn. And obviously, the taken screenshots will then be stored in the Pictures folder by default. But what if you don’t want your Pictures folder to be cluttered? Thankfully, Windows gives you the ability to change the screenshot folder. And in this tutorial, we will show you how to change screenshot location in Windows 10.
Before getting started, note that we used the following method on a Windows 10 PC, but it can also work well on Windows 8 and 8.1. For now, just follow the steps we are outlining below:

Step 4: Here, choose the Location tab, and then click on Move.
