How to Take a Screenshot of a Whole Webpage in Chrome & Firefox

Screenshots can be very useful for blogs, presentations, and customer care, etc. It is quite easy to take screenshots of the visible area, but there aren't many ways to take screenshots of a whole webpage. Typically, most people use extensions to do the task, however, it is also possible to take a full screenshot without using any third party extension or plugin.

If you don't trust browser extensions then you can use Developer Tools in Chrome and Firefox to do the same.

Chrome: You can use Responsive Design Mode in chrome to capture the whole webpage. Follow the following simple steps to see how to do it:
  • Go to the page you wish to capture.
  • Launch Developer Tools by pressing F12 button or navigate to Menu > More Tools > Developer tools.
  • Press CTRL+SHIFT+M simultaneously to go to the device toolbar.
  • Click on the "More options" button from the top right corner of the screen.
