[feature-request] GUI: Please add option to take VM screenshot => Fixed in SVN

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Please add option to make screenshot of VM from GUI.

The best place to put it is: VM->Machine->Take Screenshot (just near "Take Snapshot").

Some user needs it very much, as described here: (user compares VBox to VMware)  http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/virtualbox-3.html

As for me, it would make my life easier too, because now I need to use MS Paint/KDE Kolourpaint to edit screenshot, and cut all the extra window dialogs/menus/decorations.

I would appreciate it.

In addition, the screenshots location must be customizable via:

VBox Main Settings->General->Default Screenshots Folder

vote +1, I think this feature is especially useful if the guest screen resolution is larger than the host resolution...

This wish is still relevant for 3.1.x series

+1 I want it too! :)

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by bmwiedemann

+1 - would also want a command like VBoxManage controlvm <uuid>|<name> screendump <filename>

e.g. VBoxManage controlvm ubuntu10.04 screendump /tmp/screen20100512125955.ppm

This feature request is still valid for 4.0.4!

It's just sad that this very simple feature is still missing! Virtualbox is awesome, but to wait more than one year for 5 minutes of coding is unacceptable... I will have to use VMWare until this is implemented

It is possible to take a screenshot using the VBoxManage command:

VBoxManage controlvm <machine name> screenshotpng <file.png>
