Hi Guys, looking for something like this and then email the screenshot. Now since everytime i take a screenshot, the file is different, how can i use that output for my input when sending the email ? Don't know that much in PShell but i guess we can make it a variable, somehow ?
example of screenshot output file:
screenshot_20180307_042959_2654.png
Thank you
