    I think this would be great, but I think that app developers should be able to prevent screenshots being taken in-app so that we can't screenshot Netflix or protected content.

    I wonder why you can't snapshot when you're streaming to the PC with the Xbox App. Dumb.

    This would make it easy to set images from the browser as a wallpaper. I used that method on PS4. It’d be useful here.

    I agree but they won't for reasons of kids will be trying to record inappropriate videos and pictures

    This should have been added long time ago , great to see features people want take forever to make it in

  • jblp commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Absolutely. I just spent the last 10 minutes confused as to why I couldn't get a screenshot. Why is this a limitation?

    It would be amazing to be able to screenshot apps, like YouTube, which can then in turn be used for our dashboard backgrounds.

    In my opinion, I think they wouldn't do this, as it shares the stuff. Imagine if someone were watching certain videos online children shouldn't see and decided to take a screenshot, and it shares it with their younger friends.

    I think Microsoft worries that we take screenshot which include personal information like billing address. But this is very limited screen so Microsoft can select the screen which should not be taken screenshot. And we can take screenshot of other screen.

    Why can't we take a screen shot of anything on Xbox or any Xbox screen? It really is the biggest over site in the history of Microsoft. Just saying :(

    Let us take screenshots at least of the Dashboard/Home & Store.
    It would be really useful for helping other users and showcasing new features without having to photograph your screen.
    It would also debunk all the rumors about leaks as they are always shown as a low quality photo of the store page, which makes things easier to fake. If we could take clear screenshots of the Store this wouldn't be a problem.
    I can screenshot anywhere on Windows, so why not on Xbox?

    this would be such a great feature sometimes it won't even let me take a screenshot or video when it should

  • Jak81 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yeah, was missing this feature today when I wanted to take a screenshot of my profile, because I had a nice Gamerscore (58885), but I had to grab my crappy phone to take a pic. :/

    Hello Xbox theme it looks like you haven't read this thread. There's another thread related to screenshots where a man claims has been fixed in the March update. That fix is not what we are talking about in the Xbox community. We would like to be able to take screenshots at anytime anywhere on the system. For example my 1996 HP laptop has it bility to take screenshots at any time. So why not my Xbox One? Thank you Xbox support team and hopefully you get to this soon

    Printscreen on Windows can capture almost anything, so why not on Xbox?
