Full Screen desktop including Taskbar

Hi Team,

How to include the taskbar also in the screenshot? as I need to show the timestamp as well in the generated screenshot.


We can take entire screen a screenshot with no element chosen using TAKE SCREENSHOT activity

In the Take Screenshot activity are you indicating elements on the screen?

If so try disabling the code for that and just add a Take Screenshot activity.

Yes. I have used only take screenshot without indicating the element.

Hi @Saikat_Chowdhury try it to select from bottom/down up to where you want it to be. Click and hold the left button as you drag to select a region. Hope it works.


Its not allowing to select the taskbar in region


Is the “Auto-hide the taskbar” option selected? (In the taskbar - Right click - Properties - Auto-hide the taskbar). If so unselect it and try again.

Its not in auto hide

thanks…this works

Hi Everyone,

I have the same Question. I want to include the TASKBAR, to be precise the Date and Time region of the TASKBAR in my screenshot.

I can take the full screen’s screenshot of an application without the Taskbar using UiPath StudioX. Can anyone tell me how I can include the TASKBAR in my screenshot as well?

Hi @araf_mustavi,

You can take screenshots through Select Region method.
I have tried that method, and was able to get the desired result.

Hope this solves your issue.


Hello, can you show me how you took this screenshot ?

I need do the same… take a screenshot of a webpage in Google Chrome including the taskbar

This way i cannot get the taskbar:


@nelson.lcordeiro Just in case you still need this.

What I did to capture the entire screen is to:

  • First use app/browser activity (i.e. chrome)
  • Then use app/browser activity again and indicated target as the taskbar.
  • Then add the screenshot activity.
  • Indicated the target. (anywhere on the taskbar, for now) No anchor.
  • Then I edit the target, unclicked everything except fuzzy selector, then clicked settings.
  • I then used UI explorer, and on the indicate target, I chose the entire screen, validated it and then the entire screen was captured.

The fuzzy selector should show:

Hope it works for those who need it for StudioX.


i use the Activitie ‘Get Active Window’ and ‘Take Screenshot’ (Classic Design) with follow Properties

  • Target > Clipping Region: (1, 1, 1920, 1080) – This is the default Screenresulution of the Roboter Runtime
  • Target > Selector: "<wnd app='*' cls='*' title='*' />"

Take Screenshot - Fullscreen
