Taking a Screenshot on Pc

I find it a bit of a hassle to take a screenshot since i don't play on full screen. So my suggestion is allowing players to take a screenshot even though they are not on full screen :V.

    Fraps closes CC most of the time if you launch it after launching CC. It occasionaly happen if it is lanched before as well

    Nah it doesn't, and I already used that feature, but CC has already been closed that way

    F12 works for me and I never play fullscreen. Check your Steam settings. Do you have the in-game overlay enabled?

    F12 doesn't work for me for CC...it works for every other game I play, just not CC.

    ETA: The nice thing about the F12 on steam is that it gives you the option to automatically/quickly upload the pictures on the game hub. Sure you can snip/printscreen, etc, and then upload, but it's a more manual/tedious process.

    I use the tool Lightshot. It gives you the ability to take a screenshot from a certain part of your screen, add highlighting or drawings on it, save or copy the picture instantly. It's a must-have tool for me

    Does it work via hotkeys? or must we have to open the software and do like the spinning tool?

    Use mobile and push the power button and home button at the same time. Never fails. :D

    > Are you on Windows 10?
    > Is Steam up-to-date?
    > Do you have the in-game overlay enabled?
    To check your screenshot shortcut key, click on Steam (top left corner of window) > Settings > In-Game.
    You'll see it there.

    No need to have Windows 10.

    Can now confirm that for CC, I have to be in full screen mode. Frustrating as I almost never play in full screen mode because I use other windows at the same time. Oh well, guess I'll just keep using the snip tool that comes with Windows.
