Where Are Screenshots Saved in Cities Skylines 2?

On PC, you can find your Cities Skylines 2 screenshots in the following location:

C:\Users\[YourUserName]\AppData\LocalLow\Colossal Order\Cities Skylines II\Screenshots

You’ll need to replace [YourUserName] with the username you ran the game from on your PC. Inside, you should find any photos you took using the game’s photo mode.

The AppData folder is hidden by default, so if you can’t see it in [YourUserName] folder, go to the “View” menu on the File Explorer ribbon and ensure that “Hidden items” is checked under “Show/Hide”.

At present, there isn’t an option to create a screenshot save location in the game. If you want quick access to your screenshots, we recommend you make a shortcut to the folder on your desktop. Alternatively, you could pin the folder to Quick Access in File Explorer.
