  • You can use SeleniumBasic to take screenshot and then paste it into Excel.  I'm using Chrome in this example because it is simpler.  Windows embeds edgedriver in Windows 10 so it is a convoluted process to start Edge and connect to instance in SeleniumBasic.  You'll need to update chromedriver to your version of Chrome.  This example just saves image.  There are 1000's of examples on web to insert image into Excel.

    Private Sub Take_ScreenShot_Content()
      Dim driver As New ChromeDriver
      driver.Get ""
      'take a screenshot of the page
      Dim img As Image
      Set img = driver.TakeScreenshot()
      'save the image in the folder of the workbook
      img.SaveAs "C:\temp\sc-content.png"
    End Sub

  • Here are steps to update chromedriver.exe.  SeleniumBasic installs in C:\Users\ <user>\AppData\Local\SeleniumBasic.  Go to ChromeDriver - WebDriver for Chrome

    Download driver that matches your version of ChromeReplace driver

    Look at Excel examples.
