Take Screenshot

This activity allows to take screenshots (full screen and/or individual applications) and save it in a given place.

Enter the path to folder where the screenshots should be located. The captured images have a .png extension. Files with screenshots have a schematic naming: each file starts with the application name separated by the underscore character from the original file name. Activity does not take into account application windows from Windows Store and chosen applications from Windows 10 (like games, movies and TV).

The activity first takes a screenshot of the entire screen, and then the windows of individual applications (the restore action is performed and the application window is placed in the foreground). You can choose to take only a screenshot of the entire screen (checkbox at the bottom of the activity block).

When folder pointed in Save path does not exist – Wizlink® creates it.
