Can't find your screenshot folder?

For a long time I’ve been wondering where my wow screenshots went to in windows. There’s quite a few posts about this in various places, but it seems that the location gets changed almost every other year or so. Right now I’ve found my screenshots (with their order all messed up) at: C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft_retail_\Screenshots

I hope this will help someone else looking around for this and seeing lots of old threads on google with wrong and outdated info.


They have always appeared in the main Warcraft folder where the WoW.exe is.


As Dottie explained it should be in your Main Warcraft folder.

\World of Warcraft\_retail_\Screenshots

I have mine set up differently so it sticks them in a different folder, I use a symbolic link (symlink) to do it. It stopped me losing all my screenshots everytime I do a fresh install or have a new build.

It’s explained here

Actually it’s \World of Warcraft\_retail_\Screenshots I know, I’m a pedantic git.

I don’t know why that didn’t copy paste properly. I will try to edit it.

Edit - It is correct if I go in to edit

but it changes it in the quote box for some reason. Have gone your route and removed the quote box and used </> instead.

Thanks anyway, it was annoying me too!!!
