# How to get the complete screenshot of a page in Selenium with python?

We can get the complete screenshot of a page in Selenium. While executing any test cases, we might encounter failures. To keep track of the failures we capture a screenshot of the web page where the error exists.

In a test case, there may be failure for reasons listed below −

• If the assertion does not pass.
• If there are sync issues between our application and Selenium.
• If there are timeout issues.
• If an alert appears in between.
• If the element cannot be identified with the locators.
• If the actual and final results are not matching.

For capturing the screenshot, save_screenshot() method is available. This method takes the full page screenshot.

## Syntax

driver.save_screenshot("screenshot_t.png")

In the arguments, we have to provide the screenshot file name along with the extension of .png. If anything else is used as extension, a warning message will be thrown and the image cannot be viewed.

The screenshot gets saved in the same path of the program.

## Example

Code Implementation for full page screenshot.

from selenium import webdriver
#browser exposes an executable file
#Through Selenium test we will invoke the executable file which will then
#invoke actual browser
driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="C:\chromedriver.exe")
# to maximize the browser window
driver.maximize_window()
#get method to launch the URL
driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm")
#to refresh the browser
driver.refresh()
#to get the screenshot of complete page
driver.save_screenshot("screenshot_tutorialspoint.png")
#to close the browser
driver.close()
