    Information Sometimes it's simpler to show someone what's on your screen than it is to explain it. Windows lets you take a picture of the screen so you can save, print, or share what you see. This is referred to as taking a screenshot or screen capture.

    You can take a screenshot and automatically save it as a file, take a screenshot without saving it as a file, or take a screenshot of only one window (instead of the whole screen).

    These screenshots are saved in your C:\Users\(user-name)\Pictures\Screenshots folder with a file name of Screenshot (#).png with # indicating the screenshot index counter. Each screenshot you take increases the counter # in the file name incrementally by one.

    This tutorial will show you how to reset the screenshot index counter back to 1 for the Screenshot (#).png files for your account in Windows 10.

    Note The screenshot index counter is stored as the data value of the ScreenshotIndex DWORD in the Explorer key in the registry location below. The .bat file and context menu in this tutorial sets the ScreenshotIndex DWORD value back to 1 in order to reset it.
