How to enable the backup of your screenshots in Photos

One of the most important features of Google Photos is its backups, which are trying to work better and better.

This It serves both to activate and deactivate the backup of any folder on the device, but as we have said, it is the screenshots that are not activated by default.

Perhaps for you, screenshots are just as important as any other folder on the device, since it can host important conversations, your marks in your games or anything else. In case this is the case for you, pay attention to these steps.

Activate backup

To activate the backup first of all we will have to open the Google Photos app on our phone.

Once we have the application open we will open the menu by clicking on the button with the three lines in the upper left part of the screen. When the menu opens we will select Device folders.

In device folders we can see all the photo folders of our device, so as is obvious, we will search and select the folder of Screenshots or Screenshots.

As we have said, it works for any folder. Folders that do not have automatic backup enabled will have a crossed out cloud symbol to indicate that they are not uploading to the cloud.

When entering the folder, what we will see located at the top is the option to Create backup and syncPressing the switch will start the backup.

With this, we will have activated the backup of our captures folder, or WhatsApp images or whatever we want or suit us.

Also remember that if you want to deactivate a folder that has backup enabled by default, you can do it in the same way.

With this method you will not have to worry if you change your mobile phone, or if you want to access your photos from your computer or another device.
