Google Chrome’s Full Page Screen Capture screenshot add-on offers scrolling screenshot capabilities. Simple and effective in capturing images. After enabling the add-on, users will have the option to:

The ability to take scrolling screenshots is useful for people creating instructional content. Scrolling screenshots can make drawing ideas much easier than usual.
This type of screenshot can also be used to report problems with the software as the user can pinpoint the problem more clearly.
It should be noted, however, that scrolling screenshot software is not 100% perfect. One of the main problems is the inability to handle web pages with static elements or fast-moving animations. Some screenshots have to be taken manually in such cases as the software will not manage to scroll automatically.
Screenshots will be very helpful if we are able to take all the information in one complete image. Because often web pages have a size that exceeds the computer screen, so we need to scroll all the way to the bottom.
