Capturing snips from screen captures

Take screen captures of computer's screens to snip the anchor image, which identifies an application control or position in the screen where the bot needs to act on. Actions can include clicking a button or a field, waiting for an image to appear, or getting an image text.

Use the Snipping Tool or the Screen Capture Tool to take screen captures from your computer's screen. Both tools are available through the IBM RPA Studio's recorder.
