Note: The screenshot key will place a picture of the game (without the in mission UI) to the “captures” folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Warframe\Downloaded\Public\Captures for standard users. Screenshots taken this way contain metadata that will be helpful to developers to troubleshoot the game. Steam users will find them in the “captures” folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Warframe\Captures. Sometimes they are saved in C:\Users\<Username>\Pictures\Warframe.
