There are a lot of different ways for capturing your desktop screen of the web pages on your Google Chrome browser. You can make use of the very old print screen key option, or even capture the screen using a windows snipping tool or any other third party applications of your choice. There are also different Chrome extensions for taking screenshots.
Google Chrome includes a built-in screenshot tool, but it’s a bit hidden. You’ll first enter two sets of keyboard shortcuts, then enter a command to capture a full-page screenshot of any web page.
But very few people know that Google Chrome is actually capable of taking screenshots. It has the built-in capability to screen capture your desktop without the help of any third party application or extension.

- Then go to Settings>Developer Tools or you can just simply press the F12 key
