Do you want to change where screenshots are saved on your Galaxy phones? This post will guide you on how to change the screenshot location on Samsung Galaxy phones running One UI 5.1 based on Android 13.
In the meantime, the best approach to rapidly capture the digital material displayed on the screen of your Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet for sharing or later reference is to take screenshots.
If you use a Samsung device and are unhappy with the default location of your screenshots, One UI 5.1 makes it simple to modify the default location.
Samsung smartphones didn’t have a native ability to distinguish screenshots from images captured by their cameras for a very long time. With the addition of a selection box to modify the folder location where your screenshots are saved, One UI 5.1 now makes it feasible.
But snapshot storage has long been a problem with Samsung handsets. For some reason, Galaxy smartphones don’t differentiate between screenshots made directly on the device and camera images, causing both to end up in the same place. Despite the fact that the two types of photographs are very distinct from one another, they are stored in the same folder as your portraits, selfies, and other pictures.
How to Change the Screenshot and Screen Recording Location on Samsung Galaxy [One UI 5.1]
In One UI 5, Samsung saves screenshots by default in the DCIM/Screenshots folder. Since Google Photos automatically backs up the content located inside the DCIM directory, this resulted in all screenshots being stored up there. You may use any folder as this location in One UI 5.1. By doing this, you can stop Google Photos from storing a copy of your screenshots on its servers.
Here’s how to change the default screenshot and screen recording location on Samsung devices:
1. Go to the Settings app.
2. Tap Advanced features.
3. Select Screenshots and screen recorder.
4. Tap on the Save screenshots in option.
5. Tap the + icon at the top right-hand corner and create a new folder.
6. Choose your newly created folder and tap Done.
7. Meanwhile, you can also change the screen recording location. Navigate back to the Screenshots and screen recorder screen, scroll down, and select Save screen recordings in.
Every screenshot you take on your Samsung device going forward should be saved in the Screenshots folder you just made.
That’s all. With Samsung One UI 5.1 based on Android 13, now you can easily change and set the screenshot or screen recording location on your Samsung Galaxy devices.
