Take a screenshot of a webpage

Java Selenium take/save screenshot of webpage and add on report

public void Screenshot() throws Throwable{
    final byte[] screenshot = ((TakesScreenshot) driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.BYTES);
    scenario.embed(screenshot, "image/png"); // ... and embed it in the report.


 public static void captureScreenShot(WebDriver ldriver){

  // Take screenshot and store as a file format
  File src= ((TakesScreenshot)ldriver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
try {
  // now copy the  screenshot to desired location using copyFile method

 FileUtils.copyFile(src, new File("C:/selenium/"+System.currentTimeMillis()+".png"));

catch (IOException e)


Python Selenium take/save screenshot of webpage

from selenium import webdriver

# Create a new cromedriver
driver = webdriver.Chrome()
# Go to www.google.com
# Saves a .png file with name my_screenshot_name to the directory that
# you are running the program from.
screenshot_name = "my_screenshot_name.png"

driver.save_screenshot will return ’true’ if the screenshot was taken, and ‘false’ if it was not. Saving screenshots also works with headless browsers. If you want to save a screenshot in a different directory, just add the filepath (relative to where you are running the code from). For example:

screenshot_name = "screenshots/my_screenshot_name.png"

Will save the screenshot in directory “screenshots” inside the directory that python is being run from.

C# TakeScreenshot extension

public static Screenshot TakeScreenshot(this IWebDriver _driver)
    return ((ITakesScreenshot)_driver).GetScreenshot();
