Where are Starfield Screenshots Saved? – Answered

You might've capped some great moments, but where are they?

Like a lot of modern games these days, Starfield comes with a Photo Mode. This is a feature you can activate from the pause menu whenever you want, letting you take a screenshot of the environment should you think it’s worth grabbing. It comes with a whole host of settings, alongside a free cam to grab screenshots even from places your character can’t reach. All of this, without any UI cluttering things up. However, you might want to see these screenshots after taking them for obvious reasons. Here’s where your Starfield screenshots are saved.

Where Can You Find Your Starfield Screenshots?

Assuming you aren’t referring to the Photo Gallery (also in the pause menu), then you’ll want to open up your PC’s File Explorer. From there, you want to access your Documents folder (or if it’s empty, your Documents folder through your OneDrive). Then open the My Games folder, Starfield, Data, Textures, and finally Photos. If done correctly, the file path should look something like what’s shown in the above picture.

Once you’re in the folder, you’ll find all of your screenshots alongside thumbnail versions of each photo. These are smaller versions of said photos in case you want them, though you’re safe to delete them if they aren’t needed. Otherwise, the regular photos are all saved in your game’s currently set resolution (for me, that’s 1920×1080) for easy viewing.

Can You Change Where Photos Are Saved?

Sadly, it seems like you can’t change where photos in Starfield are saved. As a silver lining, you can pin the folder in your File Explorer for quick and easy access. To do this, drag the folder over to the list of pinned folders to pin it. To change this later, right-click the folder and select “Unpin from Quick Access”.
