Where are screenshots saved to?

Thanks to the good people here, I have NFS served up from my home server, from my connected USB drives, an all is good in my OSMC world!

I read how you can take a screenshot, both via a keyboard OR SSH/CLI, but I cannot find where the screenshots are saved. Any ideas?

Thank you so much for your time!!

When you first take a screenshot, you will be prompted to specify the directory

If I did it within the GUI yeah, but I didn’t. I used a command via CLI on a remote laptop via SSH.
xbmc-send --action=“TakeScreenshot”

It turns out the CLI command via putty worked, and I found that the screenshot was saved in my OSMC home folder under
/home/osmc/.kodi/temp as screenshot000.png

I have been looking at how I can change this folder through the GUI but have not found the option. It exists in settings on Confluence I see (on google), but haven’t found out how to get to the debug settings in Axon (SP?)

Grep /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml. Likely a ‘screenshot’ option.


Try changing Settings>System>Debug>Screenshot Folder

Thanks Mike
