Whatsapp is an instant messaging app that has gained a great popularity. It uses your phone number as an ID and you need not to create an email or username in order to use the app. You can communicate with your friends and family through Wi-Fi or Mobile Data and send text messages, photos, videos, locations and documents.
Initially, it was limited to your phone. But, Whatsapp came out with Whatsapp Web to extend the services to your computers. It still uses your phone number, as an ID and you need to connect your phone to the Internet in order to use Whatsapp. You can take screenshots in WhatsApp Web using your computer as you do in your smartphone.
How One Can Send Screenshots on WhatsApp Web
Photo Viewer App
The first method requires the presence of any third party photo viewer app on your computer. In order to avail the screenshot, all you need to do is, simply hit the “prt sc” button on that of your keyboard. You can paste this in a MS-Paint file and save it. Open the screenshot using the photo viewer app. Once the picture is opened, press CTRL+C to copy the picture. Usually, this works for most of the photo viewer apps. If this does not work, right-click on copy image. In the chat thread, press CTRL+V to preview the image and send the file.
Drag and Drop
This procedure is particularly helpful when you have to send multiple screenshots. Firstly, move your screenshots to one folder, as it will be easy to select them afterwards. Then, select the screenshots you want to share and drag them to the chat screen. This will allow you to send multiple screenshots at once. Click on Send and your job is done.
You can also attach an image to your chat screen just like you do in an email. To attach a file to the chat, click on the paper clip icon. You have to select the photo option and wait for the selection window to open. Navigate to the particular image or set of images you want to send across, select the image(s) and click on Send.
You can use these methods to send screenshots of your computer screen to the desired person. This does involve the hassle of opening up your email and attaching files therein and viewing the document on a portable device becomes much easier.
