Ubuntu 22.04 64-bit LTS

I was surprised to see the new screenshot tool throw up a message that I could paste the screenshot into a file. Why should this be required? My old 18.04 setup could do it out of the box. How do I configure this basic function? I could not find anything in settings.

More From » 22.04


Even if I liked the old gnome-screenshot tool, the new tool even improves.

If you just invoke it, PrtScr, you can still do everything: make screenshots of the entire screen, a window or selection, or record the screen. You do not need to think ahead on whether you want a screenshot to file, or one to the clipboard: the new tool just does both.

Make your screenshot, and find the file in ~/Pictures/Screenshots, or paste it in your application. It is your choice.

If you know what you want to capture, then hit Shift+PrtScr to capture the entire screen, or Alt+PrtScr to capture the active window. Again, no need to think ahead: paste the figure or find the file in ~/Pictures/Screenshots: it is your choice.

So also in 22.04, both functions are available, but the mental overhead - do I want output in clipboard or in a file - has been removed.
