How to take a screenshot of a web page using Chrome’s screenshot tool?

Chrome’s new screenshot capturing tool is not directly accessible, and it will be accessed in the “Sharing menu” which appears at the bottom of the screen. When you try to share any web page through Chrome’s “Settings menu” or from the browser’s address bar, then the bottom sheet slides up with three rows. The last row has actions like Screenshot, Copy link, send to your devices, QR code, and the last action is Print.

The drawing tool will help you to doodle in 18 different colours with six stroke sizes. On the other hand, the undo and redo feature is also available through this tool.
