Is there a way for me to be able to take a full screen shot of my Logon screen?

you can get it by capturing a screen shot when booting up a vm OR you can get crafty and duplicate it in you image editor.

thanks anyway... but i already found an easier solution...

i found winbubble and used its snapshot feature, but could not find a way to do it without the winbubble window on top of the screen, so I plugged in another monitor and used extended desktop and placed the winbubble there, away from the logon screen...

I really don't know other ways to do it, then I read in a forum about WinBubble . I plugged an extra monitor then used the "extended desktop" option in display settings. Then I enable launch WinBubble in logon screen , then pressed windows + l to lock windows (I didn't reboot or anything, I haven't tried doing that yet) and launched WinBubble. Then I move the winbubble window to the extended desktop and hit on snapshot.

Hope this helps :D

If there are better/easier ways to take screen shots of the logon screen, I would be happy to know about it.

This is interesting reading. I only fail to see why anybody would want to capture the log-on screen. What is the purpose?

LOL!
bragging rights i think! LOL!!!
or maybe trying to put together a tutorial of some kind. ?????

i can't speak for anybody else - but the only time i wanted to do it was to show off how cool my log-on screen looked. LOL!!
either way it would probably fall into into the geeks stupid geek tricks section : D !!!
