Screenshot Question

New Player Help and Guides
When I take a screenshot with the in-game screenshot mechanism thingy, where does it go, and how can I find it and save it onto my computer? Thanks.
It is on your computer. Look at your WOW folder (wherever you installed the game on your computer). There is a screenshot folder in there.
It's saved on your computer. If you run on Windows, you can find it via right clicking on the World of Warcraft icon on your desktop, clicking open file location, opening the screenshots folder, and voila.

It's normally either -

C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\Screenshots
C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Screenshots

- but it depends entirely on where you saved your game.
Also, if you have a shortcut on the Desktop, right-click on it and select "Open file location," and you should see the Screenshots folder right away. Sometimes I find that route faster.
