Where are Steam screenshots saved? How should you find it?

Steam can easily take screenshots in any game by simply pressing the F12 function key.

After doing this, you should see a small notification that the screenshot has been saved on your computer.

Unfortunately, it may not be obvious where the screenshots are saved. However, you can easily find it in the Steam app on your computer.

You can find the screenshot directly through the Steam app. If you need to look for saved screenshots without using the Steam app, such as the app has been uninstalled from your computer, you can open the folder where Steam is installed.
