My main concern about Miiverse soon closing down is that I won't be able to take screenshots of my games anymore. Is there some other way to take screenshots that I don't know about? (and a way to get them off of my 3DS and onto my PC?)

While you're in a game, just press the home button, go to the browser, and go to https://i.nintendo.net/wiiu/ and you can post the screenshot to either your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. The screenshot will be posted there (an example - http://freezingicekirby.tumblr.com/post/165664734222/just-testing-something )

You might be able to do it other ways, but this is the one I used a few years ago. Also, it does allow you to use either the top or gamepad screen.

What if I don't use Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr?

You can upload screenshots to anything that has a file upload HTML form.

Note that this doesn't work with any software that doesn't allow screenshots to be posted to Miiverse (main examples I can think of are the video applications like Netflix and Hulu).

You can try using postimg.org

Most other image upload sites won't work on the Wii U browser anymore.

Use your cell phone / digital camera and take a photo of the screen.

There's always capture cards (that's how alot of people stream everything from Switch to Gameboy Color on Twitch.tv), and as the other user said, a secondary camera external from your console like a cell phone or digital cam.

That is a horrid solution, but I guess it IS a solution nonetheless.

Just make a throwaway social media account and save the images from there.
