Microsoft Edge is getting a new useful feature ‘Web Capture’

The Chromium-based Microsoft Edge is a great browser, but like
every other web browsers, Edge is also missing one core
function: the ability to capture a screenshot of a website
without using Windows 10’s built-in snipping tool.

While Microsoft Edge comes with a useful built-in command for
capturing screenshots if you use the developer tools, there’s
no flexible, effective, and easy solution to capture the
website you’re visiting.

Microsoft appears to be working on a new feature called ‘Web
Capture’ that will allow you to take a full or cropped
screenshot of a webpage and you can either copy it to your
clipboard or preview it.

The preview screen of the Web Capture currently lets you save
or share the image, but Microsoft could also enable support for
annotation, allowing you to draw on the screenshot and share it
with your co-workers.

Web Capture in Edge

To access the new screenshot tool, you need to open the menu
and click on ‘Web Capture’ option.

When you’re in Web Capture screen, you can create a window to
capture a partial screen, and the experience is similar to
Windows 10’s built-in snipping UI. This requires you to drag
the cursor across the screen using your mouse until you create
a box. Once done, let go of the mouse button to capture the
screen of the complete box.

The only problem? It’s currently rolling out to some users in
Microsoft Edge Canary and it may not show up on your device
now.
