I need to capture the ENTIRE screen (my program must not be visible) and then I want that picture shown on the desktop, completely covering it so that it looks like you're watching the desktop, but in fact your watching a picture.

I found this cod on vb-worlds online tips section:

Add the following code to a module:

            Declare Function BitBlt Lib "gdi32" _
            (ByVal hDestDC As Integer, ByVal x As Integer, _
            ByVal y As Integer, ByVal nWidth As Integer, _
            ByVal nHeight As Integer, ByVal _
            hSrcDC As Integer, ByVal xSrc As Integer, _
            ByVal ySrc As Integer, ByVal dwRop As _
            Long) As Integer

                Declare Function GetDesktopWindow Lib "user32" () As Long

                Declare Function GetDC Lib "user32" _
                (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long

                Public Const SRCCOPY = &HCC0020
                Public Const SRCAND = &H8800C6
                Public Const SRCINVERT = &H660046

                Form Code

                Set the Form properties to the following:

                 AutoRedraw    True
                 BorderStyle   0 - None

                 WindowState   2 -
                               Maximized

                Now, add the following code to the form:

                Private Sub Form_Load()

                Dim DeskhWnd As Long, DeskDC As Long

                'Get the hWnd of the desktop
                DeskhWnd& = GetDesktopWindow()

                'BitBlt needs the DC to copy the image. So, we
                'need the GetDC API.
                DeskDC& = GetDC(DeskhWnd&)

                BitBlt Form1.hDC, 0&, 0&, _
                Screen.Width, Screen.Height, DeskDC&, _
                0&, 0&, SRCCOPY

                End Sub

                Add a command button to the form with following code:

                Private Sub Command1_Click()
                Unload Me
                End
                End Sub
