Taking Screenshots

How do I take screenshots in Guild Wars?

  1. If you want to disable the interface when taking the screenshot, press Ctrl+Shift+H. You can use the same key combination to re-enable the interface when you're done.
  2. Press the PrtScn key on your keyboard (it's usually located in the upper right corner).
  3. That's it, you're done! Your screenshots will be saved in a screenshot sub-folder in your Guild Wars directory (located by default at C:\Program Files (x86)\NCSOFT\Guild Wars). You can also press Ctrl+V after each individual shot if you'd like to paste the images directly into a document in a program like MS Paint.

What file formats can I use for screenshots?

Guild Wars screenshots are produced as JPEG/.jpg or bitmap/.bmp images, but can be converted to many different file types by re-saving the image in your preferred format.
