PC operating systems has specific instructions on how to do a screenshot. Here are a few ways you can take a screenshot immediately without the use of in-game functions.

For Windows, you can:

  • Press and hold these three keys at the same time: 'Shift' + 'Command' + '3'.


How to Access Saved Screenshots from Kamera / Special Kamera on Mobile Devices


Using your iOS, Andriod, or other mobile devices, saving your screenshots through the Kamera Gadget is fairly simple to follow. After you have taken a photo, Genshin Impact will show you the final result of that screenshot. It then provides players a few options of what to do with that specific Genshin Impact screenshot.

At this point, you can see four buttons each with different buttons. The buttons have the following functions, starting from the right.

  • Share your screenshot on Facebook. Your Facebook friends will be able to view your screenshot.

  • Share your screenshot on Twitter. Your screenshot will be a new tweet that other people get to see.

  • Share your screenshot on Instagram. Your Instagram followers will be able to view your screenshot.

  • Save your screenshot on your mobile device. You can now view your screenshot from your Photo Album.

Screenshot Alternative Method: Using Mobile Device's Built-In Screenshot Function

Mobile devices these days have a built-in function to do a screenshot. Depending on the mobile device you use, there is a certain combination of buttons that you can press together to do a screenshot.

  3. Once equipped, you can now enter photo mode by selecting or pressing the Kamera or Special Kamera!
    (Note: there are very slight differences between camera modes on varying mobile devices and platforms.)

Using Genshin Impact Game Features - Kamera


Genshin Impact has provided two in game image saving ways, which are by using the following Gadgets:

  • Taking pictures with the Camera

  • Taking pictures with the Special Camera

The difference between the Kamera and Special Kamera is that the Special Kamera has an additional golden, hazy effect around the picture's borders, making it look a little more antique for those players who wish to have some photo effects for their screenshots.

Unable to Find ScreenShot Folder Using Mentioned File Path


There is a possibility that you may have not downloaded Genshin Impact using default settings due to personal preferences or that your C Drive did not have enough memory space to fit the Genshin Impact game folder.

If this problem surfaces, use the Search Function in File Explorer and search 'Genshin Impact'. Once your File Explorer app returns the specific folder, continue by clicking on Genshin Impact game > ScreenShot.
