Windows 10: Take a full screenshot of the "start page"

    Take a full screenshot of the "start page"


    Hello,
    I need to keep in a image (screenshot) my full start page of Windows 10.
    There is a way to capture it (it's very very long)?
    The normal screenshot it's only for the full screen, not more.
    Thanks

    What do you mean by start page? The start menu or the loading screen or log in screen?

    You'll need a 'Scrolling Capture' app such as Techsmith's Snagit,

    very tricky to capture though, as it is a dynamic image layer...

    More seriously you could take a number of images using snipping tool or similar and then combine the images in Photoshop, Gimp, or maybe even Paint

    If you need a copy for reference or backup purposes the menu is actually a set of standard shortcuts located here ... C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs although this does not contain windows "Apps"

    You can copy the folder for backup

    Yes, I've just tried that with the Snipping tool and it works. You need to set the delay to the maximum 5 seconds, click 'New', then quickly use the key and click the scroll bar to get it positioned in time. If you need more than half a dozen screenshots to get it all then it becomes something of a race to get the last few.

    You can take your time if you make a series of screenshots with +PrtSc, but then you'd have to crop each to just the Start menu before stitching them together.

    You may also find it convenient to switch to Tablet Mode to take the screenshots. In Tablet mode the All Apps list on uses multiple columns, so there would be less screenshots needed to capture it all.

    You can generate a list of installed programs and apps with Ccleaner. Open Ccleaner, then Tools, Uninstall, Save to text file. I usually load the resulting text file into Excel to edit and make it easier to read.
