Okay, I initially starting this in the 'Help' section with the thought of letting people try it out and see how it worked on different setups...
but after adding all the info, you are right, it should be here in 'Share'.

So give it a try and let me know if there ae any issues. I tried to make it as user friendly as possible.

The thing that I would be interested in is a way to restore all minimized windows after capturing the screen shot. I understand the aversion to having skins send keys, and Nircmd is too bulking for my liking, so if anyone knows how this might be done, it would eliminate the end user from having to undo the minimize all action.

Thanks in advance for any ideas. :welcome:
Not at my pc rn... But I'll come up with something tomorrow... Don't promise anything for sure though :D

I'm too lazy to check, but is there any way to use the WindowMessage plugin to send messages to take the screenshot? Something like: send Win+D, then the printscreen key, then Win+D again. Like this: WM_HOTKEY message. :confused:

@death.crafter Thanks, not expecting miracles :uhuh:

@SilverAzide Thanks, I will look into that option but I am feeling pretty lazy too! :D

Updated package in first post to V1.2021.11.14
  • Corrected text/background colors for search box for visibility with any color combinations
  • Added AutoIt3 compiled script (@Resources\Scripts\ToggleDesktop.exe) and the raw code 1

1. The script sends "Win+D" which minimizes open windows, the skin then takes a screenshot, and the script runs again to unminimizes windows

There you go ET:
SnapDesktop_1.0.rmskin
DesktopWallpaper.zip
Use ImagePath option to set the path of grabbed wallpaper. And you can use Snap command to get the wallpaper instantly, in case you have disabled the measure. The string return value is the path to the wallpaper. To use the path to the snapped image instead, use [MeasureName:Image()]. The wallpaper image will change when wallpaper changes.

I don't know about multi-monitor behaviour since I have only one.

The wallpaper path will be of the monitor where the skin is tho.

After I test with people having multi-monitor, I will update here.

I will take a look at these, THANKS! :great:

Have been optimizing the code and adding some display changes, so I will see if I can fit these into the next update.
I was also thinking about how to handle multiple monitors since I also only use 1 :uhuh:

Thanks again :)

Doing this should be easy. When desktop colors change, instead of doing an autoit run, just use [!CommandMeasure Wallpaper Snap]. And use File in MagickMeter, instead of Screenshot.
