Is there any way via a Script i can take screen shots of remote machines from my machine.
When script run has to check the txt file that has the machine names and has to take a screen shot of the machine and save as jpg.
Run every 5 min on each machine .

"AdvancedRemoteInfo also offers screenshot capture of the remote desktop...and batch operations to process multiple machines."
I think you can get various keylogging software to do this.

It's possible to write a program to do this, but I cannot imagine for the life of me why you would want this.

I dont want keylogging but screen shots of the machines.
I need to monitor few servers usage ...
So as an Admin need to get the screenshots as a proff to prove certain issues
You might want to have a look at the Freeware tool AutoScreenShot

Sample Config INI file

;300 = every 5 minutes
;DeleteMore determines who many scr shoots to keep
;in this example it is set to 1 = only the last screen shot

;Folder where the screen shot(s) are saved. Local Dir or Network Path


;would exclude administrator account user sessions

You can download the tool at

Oh. set "Compress=1" instead of "0" and the screen shots will be saved in .JPG format
The tool has a setup screen after the install where you can specify what you need. You can then modify the "options.ini", which is located in the program directory.

The tool does not show up in the TaskBar or Applications list in Task Manager. You can see it under "Processes" though.
You probably want to launch the tool by adding it to the registry at


instead of having it in the "Start Up" Folder in the Program Menu, where Users could see it and remove (if they have the permission for this).
