This batch script will take a screenshot on an Android device using ADB, download the screenshot to the directory this script to the current directory and then remove the screenshot file from the device. Screenshots are saved with filename: screenshot-YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS.png. ADB must be connected to a device already.

Hi,

I have an error :

Taking Screenshot at 112018- 94713,68
Output File: screenshot-112018- 94713,68.png

usage: screencap [-hp] [-d display-id] [FILENAME]
   -h: this message
   -p: save the file as a png.
   -d: specify the display id to capture, default 0.
If FILENAME ends with .png it will be saved as a png.
If FILENAME is not given, the results will be printed to stdout.
remote object '/sdcard/screenshot-112018-' does not exist
rm: /sdcard/screenshot-112018-: No such file or directory
rm: 94713,68.png: No such file or directory
