I cannot screenshot using Windows 10

Is there any reason Windows 10 won't let me screenshot?

It depends on the version of Windows 10 you are running. After the Creators Update, Windows allows us to use Windows + Shift + S keystroke to take a screenshot of a selected part of the screen.

This is my favorite method as I can select the portion I want. It does not require any image editing tool to crop/resize the screenshot after capture.

If you are on a laptop or your keyboard has different layout, with Fn key, then you should press Fn + Windows + Shift + S

Where does all the screenshot stored?

By default, all captured screenshot are stored in Pictures -> Screenshots folder.

If you have installed a third-party software to help you take screenshots, this software may take over the Print Screen key that makes the default screen capture function of Windows doesn't work as expected.

Windows has redesigned the Snip & Sketch tool and make it more effective to capture screenshot. In fact, it gradually replaced Snipping Tool and the default screenshot function of Windows.

How to restore the default location of the Screenshots folder?

Access the Properties of the current screenshot folder, navigate to the the Location tab and click on the the Restore Default button. By doing this, the location of where your screenshots store will be restored to the default, which is Pictures -> Screenshots. I have got a few issues when capturing screenshots on Windows and use this to get rid of it.

If the issue persists, I would recommend upgrading your Windows 10 to the latest version and try out the Windows + Shift + S keystroke.

Check in sub-folders of "Pictures".

I found my "Screenshots" folder inside a sub-folder.

Another idea: right click in the screenshots folder you said you have (From Windows 8) and click properties. If you see a tab called "Location" - that means that that is your screenshots folder now as well. You can change it or "restore default". Maybe that will fix it.

And yet another possible problem: Some computers have two modes for their function keys - one when the fn key is pressed, and one for when it's not pressed. You can try pressing Win + fn + PrtSc and see if that works. (And of course rebooting solves some problem too.)

For anybody looking for a solution for this - Changing the Location of the folder was the solution as the OP mentioned in the comments.

I also lost the screenshots folder under picture folder in win10 home.this issue find when i check the registry settings. during I lost the folder, I opened the registry by typing "regedt32.exe" and search for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Now after clicking on user shell folders, see the right side panel , where shows under name:{B7BEDE81-DF94-4682-A7D8-57A52620B86F} under data: %USERPROFILE%\Pictures\Screenshots

note: if the data value is this then it means you have screenshots folder, but when screenshots folder is missing, the reason may be sometimes when we save over screenshots to an external hard drive then we cut the original screenshots folder under the pictures folder.
note: when you do this mistake , after that if check your registry, check the under name:{B7BEDE81-DF94-4682-A7D8-57A52620B86F} under data: note: this time under data:{here path will show where you save the screenshots folder }. note: if you want all everything back to normal then just what you have to do is , find you folder where you have saved then cut and past it to its actual location under picture folder. then everything get back to normal and your data: here actual path will be shown of your screenshots .like this"%USERPROFILE%\Pictures\Screenshots" thanks.
