Nintendo Switch: How To Take Screenshots
If you've got your new Nintendo Switch or are planning on picking one up, you'll probably want to know how to take Nintendo Switch screenshots at one point or another. The process is exceedingly easy, far more than you may have expected in the first place. Here's everything you need to know about taking screenshots on the Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo Switch: How to take screenshots
If you look on your left Joy-Con controller and Pro controller (if you were lucky enough to nab one) you'll see a square dedicated button similar to that of the PlayStation 4's. This is a dedicated button meant to allow you to take in-game screenshots.
If you press the button you'll automatically take a screenshot. You'll see a notification in the upper left corner of the page that you took a screenshot. Then you can scroll down to see the "album" option on the main Nintendo Switch. This where all of your screenshots are stored. You can filter them at the bottom right of the screen, delete them, mark multiple and get rid of them, or return to the menu screen.
If you select an image and press A, you're taken to image and editing options. You can type text in on top of your image if you choose, change the size of text, add colored text, and alter other facets of the edits you make to the picture. The picture will be saved. You can post the image via the album to social media networks, or simply copy the image to the micro SD card in the Nintendo Switch. You then can remove the micro SD card from the system, take it to a computer, and edit from there.
It's an extremely simple process, and that's just about all you need to know! Make sure to check back at Modojo for additional guides, how-tos, walkthroughs and additional Nintendo Switch content.
