Taking screen shots on the Mesa Pro, Mesa 3 Windows, or Mesa 2
20 Apr 2020
In addition to using the Print Screen button on a USB-connected keyboard, there are other methods available to take a screenshot on the Mesa.
You can re-assign the functions of the hardware keys of the Mesa tablet using the Keypad setting utility. Possible functions include:
- Take a screen capture (same as Windows + Print Screen hotkey) – A copy of the screen is saved to a file in Pictures > Screenshots.
- Copy screen to clipboard (same as Print Screen hotkey) – A copy of the screen is stored in the clipboard, so you can paste it into an application like Microsoft Word or Paint.
- Copy current window to clipboard (same as Alt + Print Screen hotkey) – A copy of the active window is stored in the clipboard, so you can paste it into an application like Microsoft Word or Paint.
You could use a remote viewing utility, such as TeamViewer or GoToMeeting, to take a screenshot.
A technical method (mainly for testing) to automatically take screenshots periodoically or at certain events is to use a scripting tool such as AutoHotKey along with a tool such as iview32.exe to run a script and capture the display image whenever desired without needing user input.
