As I said above and I'm also experiencing that situation when using keystrokes Windows + Print Screen to take a screenshot, the image after it has been blackened out but nothing 🙁

I think Steam understands this, and they have provided us with a screenshot tool right above Steam Client.

Usage is very simple, when encountering a situation in the game that you want to save it, you just need to press the key F12 on the keyboard is done.

The screen after the capture will be saved immediately, and there is a sound with the notification Screenshot Saved appears in the corner of the screen - whichever angle is up to you, but defaults to the top left corner of the game screen.
