    ANSWERED - How to take a screenshot in League of Legends?

    So, currently I am working on one of my guides but I really struggle to make my own screenshots that I could put into it. I have tried classic Print screen key combined with Ctr + V in Paint program - all I could see was just a black screen. I checked out what is my screenshot shortcut in LoL and it said F12, well I used F12 and checked my screenshot folder in C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Screenshots - and again, nothing, just an empty space. If you would have any idea how to take a screenshot, I would appreciate your answer as it is pretty annoying.

    Question got ANSWERED with following solution:
    - In options change "Fullscreen" to "Windowed" or "Borderless"

    This is quite strange, it works fine for me both using the print screen key and F12 (tested on windowed, borderless & fullscreen).

    The answer probably lies in your computer/setup. I am no computer wizard unfortunately :(
    The only thing I can say is: try to google "screenshot black screen [your operating system]". Perhaps you can find a solution that way...

    if you're on windows 10 try the snippet tool. Shift+S+windows key. I found this to be one of the easiest ways to get screenshots. Put the image in paint afterwards, save, you're golden! :) Hope this helps!

    Ope! Sorry. I misunderstood the question! ehhhh! hahaha glad it's resolved. :)
