Here is a quick way to capture a screenshot and save it into a file:

Screenshots API accepts many parameters for image format, clip area, quality, etc. Make sure to check them out.

Full page screenshots#

Full page screenshot is a screenshot of a full scrollable page, as if you had a very tall screen and the page could fit it entirely.

Capture into buffer#

Rather than writing into a file, you can get a buffer with the image and post-process it or pass it to a third party pixel diff facility.

var bytes = await page.ScreenshotAsync();

Element screenshot#

Sometimes it is useful to take a screenshot of a single element.

var elementHandle = await page.QuerySelectorAsync(".header")
await elementHandle.ScreenshotAsync(new ElementHandleScreenshotOptions { Path = "screenshot.png" });
