public class ScreenShooter {
public static void main (String[] args)
throws Exception {
ScreenShooter screenshooter = new ScreenShooter ();
screenshooter.captureScreen ("C://temp/desktopSnapshot.png");

public void captureScreen (String fileName) throws Exception {

Dimension screenSize = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit ().getScreenSize ();
