Assuming you have uploaded your screenshot(s) to an image sharing site, you can embed them in the Discussions using the following Markdown syntax:

![](link to image)

Note the link to your image must be a link to the image itself, not the page in which it is contained. Example:

https://imgur.com/hquxMz3

This is a link to an Imgur post for Chechnyaball. Using this link will not work. However the actual image (which can usually be accessed by right clicking the image and clicking "Copy image address") is:

https://i.imgur.com/hquxMz3.jpg

This link contains nothing but the image and will work with the format.

There's more you can do with the images such as providing alternate text or linking the image to another site, as well as other commands. You can find them here.

You must use a file-sharing service of some kind. No one here can access your personal computer.
