The option to Capture full screen is present in the Opera Snapshot tool but it helps to capture only the visible part. After clicking the Snapshot icon, press the Save page as PDF button. In the Save As window, select the file name, and output folder, and it will store the entire webpage as a PDF file.

Opera browser does not automatically save screenshots to a default location. It prompts you to select the output location. Once you have captured and edited the screenshot, use the Save image button. After that, a Save As window is opened. Use that window to give a name to the screenshot, and output location. Press the Save button and the screenshot will be saved in that location as a PNG image.
