Automatically take screenshots from the browser and place it in a specified location. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to write a windows service or an application to take the screen shot of the content in the url  and place it in a specified location. 

    Please advice for any other ways of taking the screenshot automatically.

  • You cannot use a windows service as a service does not have access to a user's desktop. You'd need a regular application that starts at login. Of course how you'd screenshot the browser is an entirely different story and one that isn't simply at all. You could theoretically screenshot the screen every once in a while but there are no promises. Personally, if you wanted to see the browser history then use a network sniffer.
