How To Take A Screenshot On The HTC Vive
This guide will show you how to take a screenshot in VR on the HTC Vive
To take a screenshot in VR, you will have to look in the direction of where you want to take the screenshot, and then on the Vive controller press down both the trigger and power button at the same time. Do this for about 1 - 2 seconds, releasing both buttons at the same time, to take and save the screenshot. You should hear the screenshot sound, but if you didn't, then the screenshot may not have been taken.
Where To Find The Screenshots
But where have my screenshots been saved, you might ask? Well, never fear as I'm about to show you. Some screenshots will save to SteamVR to find them Go to your Libary > Tools and scroll down to SteamVR. Right Click > View Screenshots > Show on Disk and now you will see your screenshots. Something to note: your screenshots will save 2 copies - 1 from both eyes and 1 from a single eye.
Most screenshots should save to the game you were playing when you took the screenshots and to find those just navigate to the game in your libary > right click > view screenshots.
