  1. Cannot Find Screenshots Folder


    I have been taking screenshots by using the Windows key and Print Screen shortcut for a while now. I know that this originally created a folder in Pictures labeled Screenshots, but I had moved the folder to another location, specifically to another folder. A few weeks ago, I was having problems with my computer and moved that other folder to a flash drive to back it up. When the problem had been resolved, I made a copy of the folder and pasted it back onto my computer. I had not needed to take a screenshot until tonight and when I tried to, I could not find where it was saved. This had happened once before, but that time, a new Screenshot folder had been created in Pictures. This time, I cannot find the folder anywhere and the screenshot had not been saved in the original Screenshots folder I moved. So, is there any way for me to find where my screenshots are now being saved? Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  3. SWEETFX screenshot folder

    Hi is there a way to change the folder to which Sweetfx saves the in-game screenshots ???

    By default they get saved into the "game's directory"... but I would like to change that for another folder...
