Screen capture activity is not working while machine is lock

The screen capture activity is not working while machine is in the lock mode. Is there any other way to take screen while windows is locked?

Welcome to the community!
Activities that work on the foreground will need the session to be opened, you should use background options like SimulateClick or SimulateType…

There is no such option of SimulateClick for ScreenShot activity. Please suggest other option for same.

what i mean is that those activities that need foreground will never work if the session is not opened and active… you will need an unattended robot for this type of process, or some workarounds that i will not recommend, but you can search here.

In unattended mode, the screen capture activity is working as expected in disconnected mode.
Thank you very much!!!
