Where to see the Minecraft screenshots folder location on Windows, macOS, and Linux

Follow these paths to find out where your Minecraft screenshots are saved.

  • Windows PC users can find their saved screenshots in the Minecraft folder named Screenshots. Locate .minecraftscreenshots in the AppData/Roaming folder. To access it, simply type: %appdata%.minecraftscreenshots in the address bar of the file explorer.
  • MacOS users can locate their Minecraft screenshots in ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/screenshots.
  • Linux users can find their saved screenshots in ~/.minecraft/screenshots.
  • If you’re using the Windows 10 version of Minecraft Bedrock Edition, the default location where your screenshots are saved is C:UsersYour UsernameVideosCaptures.


If you play the Java edition on PC, the screenshot function is used with F2 by default. When you press it, the game confirms the action and tells you the name of the file it will be saved to. To find it, open File Explorer and type %appdata%.minecraftscreenshots in the address bar. This will take you directly to where the game stores your screenshots. You can move or share them wherever you want from this location.

In the Windows version of Minecraft, you can take a screenshot by pressing the Windows key and G to open the Xbox Toolbar. You can then select the camera icon which will open the capture settings. Here you can take a screenshot or capture your gameplay. The default location to save your screenshots via this method is C:UsersVideosCaptures.
