It is not at all hard to take a screenshot in SWTOR, all you need to do is press the PRINT SCRN button on the keyboard of your system. Mostly, the tricky part of taking a screenshot is that the users do not know where those screenshots end up. Fortunately, Save Locations is here to assist you and give answers to all of your such questions. To get assistance with your operating systems, see below:
IMPORTANT NOTE: There’s an odd bug for some installations of SWTOR which will cause screenshots to end up in one of two folders. One screenshot might end up in the first folder, but the next one you took might end up in the second one. Most people think that their screenshots are going missing (which is a reasonable assumption), but in reality, SWTOR is just mixing up the locations they’re going into. Make sure to check both of the below folders for your screenshots, they might end up in both.
SWTOR Windows installations will save screenshots in one, or both, of these two locations:
Your screenshots may be found inside your documents, at the following path:
%HomePath%\Documents\Star Wars - The Old Republic\Screenshots
The above folder can be accessed by opening up File Explorer, going to your Documents, then going into the Star Wars – The Old Republic folder, and finally the Screenshots folder:
Your screenshots may also be found inside your game installation files. Find out where your SWTOR installation is located, usually it’s:
- C:\Program Files (x86)\EA\swtor
- Or wherever you selected during the installation process
After locating the installation files, simply proceed to the retailclient folder, and you should be able to find your screenshots in there.
