How to find screenshots and videos on PlayStation 5. Where are images and other user files located

On PlayStation 5, all screenshots and video clips are stored in a special gallery, where other special moments in the user's gaming life are located. Records of trophies are placed there, so it will not be difficult for the player to find such events and share them with the whole world. Finding them the first time is quite difficult since this multimedia gallery is hidden in the menu. In this guide, we will show you how to find all saved screenshots and video clips on PlayStation 5.

How to access the PlayStation 5 gallery through the "Create" button

There are several ways to access the PlayStation 5 media gallery. In the first case, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Click the "Create" button, located slightly above the standard crosshair. A menu will appear on the screen with the option to capture the current frame.
  2. Navigate left to the last saved image and press the X button. A small rectangular menu will open with the option to send the file.
  3. Click the "Go to Media Gallery" button, which is located at the bottom of the window. A separate menu will open, in which the player can view each saved object.

  2. Navigate to the Application Library menu using the X button.
  3. In the "Installed" section, scroll to the bottom of the window.
  4. Open Media Gallery.
This method has one very important consequence. After going to the gallery, the corresponding media gallery button will be displayed on the main screen, with which you can easily and very quickly go to all screenshots and video clips.

How to Access the PlayStation 5 Gallery Through Settings

In extreme cases, there is another way that will allow not only to open the gallery but also to see the corresponding statistics on the current occupancy of the console. To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. On the main screen, click on the gear icon to go to "Settings".
  2. Open Memory. In the window that appears, you can see full-fledged statistics on the occupied space, go to saved data, and downloaded games.
  3. Click on the "Media Gallery" item to go to the available screenshots and videos.

How to sort items in the PlayStation 5 Gallery

Please note that there is a sorting function in the media gallery. To activate it, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the media gallery.
  2. Click on the icon on the left (down arrow with three horizontal lines).
  3. After opening a small sorting window, use the "Sort" item and select one of the proposed options.
  4. To activate the filter for sorting by screenshots and video clips, you must click on the "Media Type" item and check the corresponding checkboxes.
Currently, there are four sorting functions:

  1. Date added (newest to oldest).
  2. Date added (oldest to newest).
  3. File size (from large to small).
  4. File size (from small to large).
Also, objects are automatically divided into four categories - "All", "Favorites", "Prizes" and "Albums". In the last category, you can open previously collected files for only one game.

It is worth considering that the second button (two squares with a check mark) in the multimedia section allows you to instantly select several objects for further work with them. You can share a group of files, delete, copy to a USB drive, or edit in Share Factory Studio.
