Take screenshot using adb

Many times, when I am working with the Android devices, I just want to keep using the command line and be able to take the screenshots too.

Yes, we can do that!
Here is how:
Start ADB server if its not already running. To check, type in adb devices on the command line -- if its not started it should start now and give you the device id for the device you have connectedNow type in the following commands to capture a screen
adb shell screencap -p /sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots/screen.png adb pull /sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots/screen.png adb shell rm /sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots/screen.png
