I would like to minimize the number of applications running. GPU-Z is always running for me so if that works, I wouldn't have to install something like ShareX

Game in question - Valorant

No, GPU-Z takes screenshots only of its own window. :)

EDIT: IF your OS of choice is Windows 10 or 11, those have a good video & screenshot taking functions for games built-in:

If you do not want to use that Microsoft's method, lots of other free & paid programs exist that can do it. :)

EDIT #2: I assume your GPU is not Intel, and is either AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce. If so, those 2 GPU makers also have good screenshoter functions built-in into their GPU software.
(Full Radeon drivers needed for this for team Red, or drivers+GeForce Experience tool for team Green ;) )

Thanks for the replies guys. So earlier on using windows + prnt key I was getting a black screen. Later I switched to fullscreen borderless and I can take screenshots just fine :)

You are welcome. :)

Please note this chosen screen mode might slow down your game.
Does the XBox way of taking screenshots not work in fullscreen non-borderless mode? :)
OR of course, you can use the AMD Radeon/GeForce Experience way.
