Before the popularization of screenshots, the goodness or badness of game programs had to be determined by referring to the written features (complaints). 1970 eraSince then, screenshots have been used to introduce and promote computer games, allowing game players to imagine what they will be playing. However, there were some things that could not be judged, such as using more detailed images of higher-end models despite the low-resolution platform software. For example Commodore64 An image of the high-end model Commodore Amiga version was sometimes used as a screenshot of the game software.

Originally, this term refers to the recording/reproduction of data on a computer into a physical medium that can be used by humans, such as paper, without a computer, or a printed matter etc. Copying electronic data as is is called "soft copy")[1].. Therefore, in the original sense, it can be said that printing (printing) part or all of the screen display on paper is a kind of hard copy, but not printing as image data. "Printing screen display" and "hard copy" are gradually treated as synonyms, and strictly speaking, "screen shot as image data" which is soft copy is also called hard copy. .. It should be noted that in the original English, such confusion did not occur, and the word hard copy refers to a copy output on paper etc.[2].

1990 eraThen, instead of the video drawn by the operation of the game machine, the pre-rendered video created as a video in advance by a high-performance CG workstation is used as the event scene at the turning point of the game. This video is sometimes introduced as if it were a screenshot of the operation screen, and it is confusing to the consumer due to the difference from the actual operation screen. Similarly, due to complaints from consumers, the usage of screenshots in reviews was improved, and annotations such as "screen during gameplay" were displayed.

Even today, graphical screen shots are used not only for game software, but also for download sites for various application programs, which are used as a basis for making decisions when purchasing.
