  Taking Screenshots (oblivion)
This Page has been viewed 23,695 times
One of the most common questions that we get is "how do I take screenshots". Well, it's a fairly simple matter, involving changing 1 number.

First, locate your oblivion.ini file. It should be located in Cbig grinocuments and Settings[name]My DocumentsMy GamesOblivion. It should be called simply oblivion.ini. Open that up in notepad. Hit ctrl+f. That will bring up a word finder. Enter bAllowScreenShot=0 into the text finder, and hit the find next button. It will take you straight to the right line. Now, change bAllowScreenShot=0 to bAllowScreenShot=1. That just about wraps it up. Now, you just go in game, and hit the print screen button. It will save them to your cstick out tonguerogram filesbethesda softworksoblivion folder. It will unfortunately save them as a .bmp file. They are large, uncompressed files. I highly recommend changing them to .jpg files (dont use paint- it will save them at a low quality).

enjoy!

[*SNIP*] I suggest reading this article in a more careful way. It works as it should... it always did.

NOTE:
If you are on Vista, when you go into your Oblivion folder, you must click the "compatibility files" button to view the screenshots you took

after you change the ini start the game , pull up your console and type saveini.
this should keep the settings from reseting.
there is also an OBSE plugin you can use, most crash prevention plugins cover ini saving

If you are using a laptop you will have to hit the "Fn" key plus the "PrtSc" key if you want it to work. Just in case you didn't know.
