Taking screenshots is a piece of cake – press command + shift + 4, drag around the area you wish to capture (orcommand + shift + 3 for a grab of your entire screen), and you’re good to go. Windows users have it even easier – they press the PrntScr for the whole screen (or Alt + PrntScr for a selected window) and then save the ready screen grab.

But what about sharing the image, you may ask? The answer to this, as to many other things in life, is pCloud.

Just yesterday we rolled out a new version of our desktop app, pCloud Drive. With it, sharing a screenshot is easier than ever – we are practically doing everything for you, and all that’s left for you to do is paste a link into an email, messenger, on social media or wherever you find suitable.

Let’s take a look.

If you have updated your pCloud Drive to version 3.5.0, you will see the following window the first time you take a screen grab:

Click on “Enable screenshot saving” and we will allow the functionality for you straight away into a “Screenshots” folder we’ll create for you. Of course, you can also go to your Drive settings where you can fine tune your preferences.

For Windows, you can also add the option to have a download link of the respective screenshot automatically generated for you (we’ll show you a notification when this is done):

If you decide not to opt in for the link generation functionality, you can still share the screenshot by going to the folder, locating it, then using the standard sharing capabilities of pCloud Drive.

Since on a Mac screenshots are automatically saved on the desktop, we have added an extra feature for this operating system: namely, to delete the images from the desktop after they’re uploaded:

Don’t have pCloud Drive? You’re definitely missing out on having a virtual hard disk for your computer, extending your standard HDD and still being able to use the files as if they’re on the local machine. It is available for Windows, MacOS and Linux, and we see no reason for you not to use it:
