This question has already been answered here, but everything got changed around in Blender 3.0. F3 now opens up this search menu which has not been very useful in finding what I'm looking for.

I would like to save this individual frame as a PNG. How do I do it in Blender 3.0? My Interface -> Editors -> Temporary Editors -> Render In setting is set to "Keep User Interface", and I would like to keep it that way if possible.

    $\begingroup$ The first answer shown under the question you've linked above gives you 4 options. None of them is F3, did you try any of these? Because the F3 answer is about five and a half years old, the one by vklidu just 9 months. $\endgroup$ Jan 21, 2022 at 6:57

  • $\begingroup$ I see in the screenshot you show that you pressed F3over the video preview window, you are supposed to render the image with F12 first then press F3 over the rendered image. $\endgroup$ Jan 21, 2022 at 7:05
  • $\begingroup$ @mqbakamqbaka Oh, totally missed that looking at the screenshot. You're right. $\endgroup$ Jan 21, 2022 at 7:15
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, that's why the the command search is displayed. $\endgroup$ Jan 21, 2022 at 7:21

you can still save it here:

I am using a mac so i don't know your shortcut, but you can see it right beside the menu entry.


The default shortcut for it is ALT + S. Shortcuts are Area specific so make sure you hover on the image when pressing this.
