The only and the best way i know was this one.

#include <A3LScreenCap.au3>

HotKeySet("{PRINTSCREEN}", "Screenshot")
_ScreenCap_SetJPGQuality(100); Choice the quality of the saved file (1-100)

While 1
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func Screenshot()
; Capture full screen
    _ScreenCap_Capture ("C:\Image.jpg"); Choice where you want the file to be save here!
EndFunc  ;==>Screenshot

Sorry! But doing it this way you absolutely need Auto3Lib.

Hi crash748

Thanks for your reply. I actually downloaded Auto3Lib, some time ago on my system. However, I was unable to install it due to the following strange error.

"Auto3Lib requires at least version 3.2.4.9 of AutoIt. Your version of AutoIt is v3.2.6.0"

and then the installation terminates.

Hope, that you will be able to help me further

Please follow my directions in this post. The installation error has been happening to everyone. If you follow the directions you can install Auto3Lib:
