    Finding Steam screenshots using Steam

    Note: You can also find where the Steam screenshots are saved without using Steam. You will have to open a particular folder on your computer.

    For Windows 8 and Windows 10

    Open this folder [ C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam ]

    For Mac Users

    The default is Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/Steam. The username is the Mac username, not the Steam username.

    For Linux Users

    For Linux users the default is ~/.local/share/Steam.

    If you have installed Steam in a different location, you will have to find it yourself.

    • Open the userdata subfolder in the Steam folder.
    • If you have only one Steam account there will be one folder here named with a string of numbers. If you have multiple Steam accounts there will be one folder for every account. You will need to figure out which folder you want.
    • Go ahead and open the folder named 760.
    • Now, click on the remote folder. You will see the folders in this remote folder that have screenshots. They are named based on their Steam numeric ID.
    • Next, open a folder and navigate through the screenshots folder to find the images.
