If you have ever been in the situation of wanting to capture an entire web page, but you realize that the tool you have to take screenshots is only capable of doing it within the resolution of your monitor, you have probably felt somewhat frustrated.
I must confess that before deciding to look for a tool like the ones that I will show you next, the first thing that occurred to me in my silly head was to reduce the size of the text and the elements of the site in order to capture the largest possible portion of a website. , everything that falls within the visible space of my screen. This is not only a very concise way to solve the problem, but it creates another one: the image quality is terrible and nothing is readable.
Take a Screenshot of an Entire Webpage
There are several ways to take a screenshot of an entire web page, and to please as many users as possible, we are going to introduce alternatives compatible with various browsers and operating systems.
For Google Chrome: Full Page Screen Capture, my favourite and a ridiculously simple one. By installing this extension for Chrome you will get a simple button on your toolbar that when pressed captures the complete current web page in a couple of seconds. Simpler impossible.

For those who do not want to install anything: Capture Full Page is a website that allows you to enter any URL and the site will process the information from it to generate a capture of the complete website. You don’t have to install anything, and you can use the tool from any browser. Of course, the more information the website you want to capture contains, the longer it will take the site to generate the capture. You can download it in various sizes upon completion.
