the UI will automatically disappear.


and as for where the print screen button is located... its on your keyboard somewhere, or should be, unless you got a mini keyboard or something that has like most the buttons off of it.

on a standard sized keyboard its commonly found to the right of the "F12" button.

Actually all you have to do in the chat window in the game is /screenshot and you are given a choice. I usually choose the jpg version.

Then to access image in your computer, it would be public/games/startrekonline/screenshots.

Every time you press the print screen key (whatever it's called or wherever it's located on your system), an unmucked image is saved to a folder on your computer.

I'm running Windows XP, and drive C is my primary drive, so the directory I'm going to give you is exactly where the images can be found on my system; you will need to modify the path based on the drive/partition configuration on your computer, and however your operating system names it's default program folder, or if you specified a custom directory during the installation of the game.

For me, my screenshots all go to: C:\Program Files\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots

I really hope this feature is kept throughout all of the patches. If any changes to it are made, it should be that the players are given an option to select a directory to save the screenshots to. I would love to just be able to press "print screen" and have the image without the HUD or other in-game labels, text, and so on be saved to my pictures folder so I could get to it quicker and easier, but it's no big deal. I am thrilled that I can press a button and have an image without all of the crap that litters the screen saved to a folder that I now know how to find.
