Where are screenshots saved?

AO is the main topic, but you can also talk about things like the latest console game you've played, web comics, movies, music, etc. as they pertain to your AO experience.

Is it like scripts wherein you have to make a designated folder?

Screenshots should automatically have their own folder in your AO Install. If you have pressed F12 ingame and do not see anything in your AO folder called screenshots, would be worthwhile checking you have sufficient write access to that folder.

It is also supposedly an issue if you are on Vista (and possibly Windows 7) and have AO installed to C:\Program Files (among many other issues related to having AO installed at that directory, such as problems patching properly)
