Where are my Steam Deck Screenshots Saved?

Where does Steam Deck (SteamOS) store screenshots taken in Game Mode?

Why I needed to manually retrieve screenshots from the Deck #

When playing with multiple profiles on Steam Deck, there seems to be a bug in the Steam Client preventing screenshot upload for the non-primary users. Fortunately, the Steam Deck being a linux device and openly accessible, it’s quite easy to get to your screenshots (e.g. for sharing purposes) without having to send them to the cloud first.

Hint: ACCOUNT_ID and TITLE_ID are variables. Replace accordingly.

You can navigate to that folder via Dolphin:

And then send the files over to your PC/Mac, for instance using Warpinator.

Alternatively, you can set up SSH access to your Steam Deck and fetch the files directly from your other machine. I have a quick Steam Deck SSH guide if you’re interested in using e.g. FileZilla to access your Steam Deck File System. It’s nice because it also works in Game Mode.
