Perhaps, _ScreenCapture_Capture could be of help here.

I need to open google.com in Chrome and search for my query and once the search page opens, take a printscreen and save it with timestamp in x folder on my D drive. The query I want to execute is http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=my query here&gl=us



I would start by using ShellExecuteWait to launch Chrome. Using ShellExecute will open the URL in your default browser instead of using IE. e.g.

ShellExecuteWait("http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=my query here&gl=us")

Then just use the _ScreenCapture_Capture as MKISH noted as well to grab the frame and save it to file. It should be a relatively easy script to make.

The source of your Google query can come from anywhere, such as an inputbox, text field or manually insert it but I'd make it a variable and have the query come from user input.

Why Chrome? Why not using the IE.au3

Because like most people, that is not a preferred browser. Chrome is a much better browser and he should be able to use the browser of his choice for scripts. ;)

EndFuncAutoIt is the shiznit. I love it.
