    Default I can't find my screenshots folder!

    It's not in the World of Warcraft directory where it usually is...

    I have Vista.

    Someone...help?

    I have no idea about the file structure, but all WoW screenshot names are in the format of "WoWScrnShot_082008_144144.jpg" with the numbers being random. Do a full system search for "WoWScrnShot" and you should be able to find them.

    Humm. I run Windows Vista Ultimate. In mine its C:\WoW\Screenshots

    (although I use Fraps)

    So, umm, I hope it didn't get accidently deleted?

    I have vista too.. I go to Computer--> C: --> World of Warcraft --> Screenshots

    Did you partition your hardrive? I had that problem when I ran XP and do my wow stuff was always jumbled up.

    I assumed that he was able to find his world of warcraft directory, or else he wouldn't be able to verify that the screenshots aren't there...

    I think we're telling him that, in fact, the Screenshot folder in vista should be in his main WoW Directory.

    Vista is wierd, because it puts patch files in a completely different folder then the main directory.

    IIRC, Vista stashes WoW in two different folders, both of which are labeled 'World of Warcraft.' Winderz iz dum ; b

    Yeah, I moved my WoW files to the Program Files directory (rather than the Program Files x86 one that Vita writes new programs to automatically). I haven't messed with it since, but I know the screenshots are somewhere, because I accidentally passed by them when opening another photo in photoshop. I just didn't know where to return. I think Taknar's suggestion will work.

    If I recall correctly, that folder is labeled "Blizzard Entertainment" and not "World of Warcraft" anyways.

    Regardless, I assume his lack of answer means he has found them or doesn't care anymore.

    yeah my XPS laptop put wow into 2 places.
    1) my documents had all my WTF and patch folders/files.
    2) my computer>C\rograms\worldofwarcraft has all the folders and files but also another "world of warcraft" folder in it. In that second folder it repeats all the files/folders in the previous folder but also has the correct screenshot folder
    3) so "my computer>C\rograms\worldofwarcraft\worldofwarcraft\screenshot s" should be the correct location unless you installed WotlK into a new folder as it asked u too (i told it to download into the wow folder instead of making 2 wow folders)

    It should be under something like Users- Owner- Games- World of Warcraft.
